Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe by

My favorite cake frosting is cream cheese! I use cream cheese frosting for all my cakes even sometimes for the chocolate cake! I find it to be much lighter than butter frosting or butter cream. For birthday cakes when I am not using marshmallow fondant, I use cream cheese frosting.

The serving of the cream cheese frosting in this recipe is sufficient for frosting an average size cake from outside plus one inside layer. Or frosting about 30 cup cakes.

You can adjust the serving size by adding or eliminating 100 grams of cheese. Each 100 grams of cheese needs 25 grams of butter and 1/3 cup of powder sugar.

When I prepare cream cheese frosting I always prepare extra for my girls. they always add an extra layer of frosting to their cake slice plus they enjoy strawberries dipped in cream cheese frosting.

  • Beat the softened butter at high speed until creamy.
