Hi Bold Bakers!
My Best Ever Cream Cheese Frosting recipe is truly the king of all frostings! Add a slather of Cream Cheese Frosting and I think you will agree it improves any cake or dessert. Learning how to Make the Best Ever Cream Cheese Frosting is a must for you Bold Bakers so you can spread it on classics like my Best-Ever Carrot Cake to Crazy Cupcakes, donuts and so much more.
My favorite things about my Best Ever Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe are how delicious it is, and how easy it is to make. In one bowl you simply combine a little butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar and a dash of vanilla. The result is rich, thick and perfectly balanced, sweetened by powdered sugar, yet light in flavor from the soft tangy cream cheese.
You will find my Best Ever Cream Cheese Frosting super easy to work with as it whips up to be light, fluffy and shiny. You can keep it in the fridge until ready to use so it is very convenient.
I can think of endless ways to use this frosting. Make it for my 3 Layer Microwave Red Velvet Cake, spread it across a slice of my Best Ever Banana Bread, top your cupcakes and carrot cakes too. If you are like me, and the frosting is always your favorite part, you must give my Best Ever Cream Cheese Frosting a go!
