Tasteful Tuesday: Cream Cheese Frosting

Ceramic Measuring Spoons SetCream Cheese Frosting is a must-have on carrot cake, indulgent when paired with red velvet cake and irresistible on Italian cream cake. Take a look at the recipe below (enough for a 9-inch two-layered cake), and tell us how you plan on using this frosting in your baking this year.

What You’ll Need:

  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 10 ounces cream cheese
  • 7 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  1. Place butter and cream cheese in a large bowl and beat with a mixer on high speed until smooth.
  2. Gradually add powdered sugar, beating at low speed until fully incorporated (do not overbeat). Add vanilla extract and beat well.
  3. Place 1 cake layer on a plate; spread with one-third of frosting. Top with other cake layer. Spread remaining frosting over top and sides of cake. Enjoy!
