Creamy Cream Cheese Frosting2013-2013 Krista Phone 068

Makes about 3 cups of frosting.

What do I need?

  • 16 oz of cream cheese, softened 
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 to 2 1/2 cups of powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons gluten-free vanilla

What do I do now?

In a large mixing bowl (I go big since the powdered sugar can crazy here), cream together your cream cheese and butter until well mixed. Add the vanilla and mix a bit longer.  Now slowly add the powdered sugar until all has been added and is a creamy texture.  

Make it fun tip:

Add some natural food coloring to get vibrant and beautiful colors to decorate any cake!

Make it tastey tip:

Add 1/4 cup cocoa powder (or more if you'd like) for an amazing fudgy frosting!
