Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe

OMG, who else loves frosting!? I love all kinds of frosting from traditional buttercream frosting to cream cheese frosting to beer frosting (yes, beer frosting, it is a real thing!).

I eat cake strctly for the frosting.

And yet, for me, canned frosting is kinda gross. I recall my ex-SIL and her husband (who were total gitness geeks) telling me that their “special treat” was opening up a can of frosting and eating it with a spoon.

Errrr yeah… not something for me.

I like homemade frosting. I can, to some extent, control the flavor better. I can control the consistency. And honestly? Fresh, homemade frosting just plain tastes better. I know what is in it. Yum!

I hope you enjoy this cream cheese frosting. It is quick and easy to make, and tastes delicious!

Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe Notes:

• For my UK and Australian friends: confectioners sugar is icing sugar (powdered sugar, 10x).
