The Best Cream Cheese Frosting

Don’t you just love that term….”The Best”?  It is extremely subjective and does beg the question, “In whose opinion?”, but it makes a better title than

My Family Really Likes This Icing on Cake

So, I give you The Best Cream Cheese Frosting…

Italian Cream Cake 095

I use this icing on Italian Cream Cake and Red Velvet Cake.  (Although, the last time we made Red Velvet it ended up being a Trifle.)  This icing only uses four ingredients and whips up in less than five minutes…literally.  When you can make homemade in that amount of time, why not give it a try?  And I promise it’s better than the can and think of how “accomplished” you’ll feel knowing you made it yourself! 

Here’s the Recipe:

  • 1 8oz package cream cheese – at room temperature
  • 1/2 stick margarine – also at room temp
  • 1 box powdered sugar (or about 3 3/4 cups)
  • 1 tsp vanilla 

cream cheese frosting 83 In a large mixing bowl, beat margarine and cream cheese 

Add powdered sugar and vanilla and beat until smooth

cream cheese frosting 85

That’s all there is to it!  Quick, Easy and Delicious!

***If you are using this with the Italian Cream Cake (or any other 3 layer cake) I’d recommend making 1 1/2 recipes.  One recipe will make enough to cover, but it’s pretty thin and I had to really work at getting the sides covered…that’s why there’s only a picture of the top and one side***

    Yes it is the most delicious frosting. The first time I made this the butter was to soft, almost melting, and the frosting was to soft. But the second time was a charm. Stopping by from fabifabu.wordpress.com
