I’ve been dying to share this recipe with you! I know, cream cheese frosting is cream cheese frosting. But I don’t think so. I’ve tried a couple of recipes and even the slightest variation can make a noticeable change. This recipe I’ve made several times since it was given to me a month or so ago and I LOVE it!!! Love. Love. Love. It doesn’t make very much so I have ended up just doubling it each time I make it. Try it for yourself, you will see. It’s perfect!
Cream Cheese Frosting
You can't go wrong with the classic Cream Cheese Frosting - great on cookies, cakes, and cupcakes!
- 1 3 oz pkg. cream cheese frosting
- 1 tbsp. butter softened
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2 c. sifted powdered sugar
In a small mixing bowl, combine cream cheese, butter, and vanilla.
Beat at low speed with electric mixer until light.
Gradually add sugar, beating until fluffy.
[My 2 Cents]
Whatever you do: DO NOT substitute the cream cheese for anything other than Philadelphia. It will NOT turn out. I repeat it will NOT turn out and you will have to throw it all away. Lesson learned the hard way. Boo.
Beautiful Cupcakes & yummy frosting!
I hope the Florentines are perfect for you.
Thanks again for all your sweetness.
