Cream Cheese Frosting

Cream Cheese Frosting – my absolute favorite! A rich and luxurious, melt-in-your-mouth frosting made with just a handful of basic ingredients.

Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe

This decadent, silky smooth, cloud-like frosting is what dreams are made of! It’s perfect for just about any type of cake and it is so easy to make!

And it brings one more layer of heavenly flavor to an already delicious cake. A frosting like this is where the statement “icing on the cake” likely started. Perfect upgrade.

You can prepare it in a stand mixer or with a hand mixer, just use whichever you prefer. Just keep to my number one tip of chilling!
