What goes with cream cheese icing? A spoon? Really, you can pair this rich, creamy frosting with nearly any kind of cake. Carrot cake and red velvet traditionally receive this classic topping and happen to be two of our favorites. For those of you that enjoying baking at home, here’s a simple and proven recipe for cream cheese icing in case you don’t already have one in your arsenal.
1 lb. softened butter or margarine
2 lbs. softened Philadelphia Cream Cheese
4 lbs. of powdered sugar
Combine butter or margarine with cream cheese. For best results, use the paddle attachment on mixer, instead of whisk. Once butter or margarine and cream cheese are combined, slowly mix in powdered sugar.
Makes enough for approximately 20 cupcakes depending on how much you use on each each. Clearly, we like to use a lot! Will keep in refrigerator for several weeks.
Enjoy y’all! – M.T.
