Creamy frosting made with cream cheese and fresh strawberries. Perfect topping on a strawberry cake, white chocolate, lemon, or white cake. Also would be great for dipping strawberries in to eat!

Directions

  • Combine cream cheese and butter in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until creamy and smooth. Blend in vanilla extract. Gradually beat in confectioners' sugar until smooth. Fold in strawberry puree until frosting is desired flavor and consistency.

Cook's Note:

Strawberry puree may make the frosting thinner than desired, in which case you can add additional sugar or a little cornstarch to thicken. In addition, refrigerating it for a bit will help it thicken.

My family and I loved it! Due to the potential of having thin or watery frosting I added a bit more (1/4 c) confectioners sugar and added the strawberry purée a little at a time instead of the full amount the recipe called for..I used about 1/2 the amount it called for. It came out perfect:) Read More

This recipe has great flavoring however it is way to thin even after adding in extra sugar/ corn starch. I think next time if I do make this I'll use strawberry cream cheese instead of plain cream cheese. Maybe that will save this recipe. Read More

I made this frosting for a vanilla cake and the taste is delightful. Fresh strawberries are the best. It is definitely a thin frosting even after adding around a cup of extra confectioner's sugar. If I make it again I'll likely try adding cornstarch (I would've this time of I had any in my pantry). On another note it was just as delicious and much closer to the consistency of a true buttercream before adding the strawberry puree. Read More

It was runny before I ever added the puree. I only added 2 Tbls of puree and it was even worse. No amount of extra conf sugar made this any thicker. Waste of time and money. Maybe fold finely chopped strawberries in instead of puree. I've made many different frostings and this did not turn out at all. Read More

i loved this recipe! Will certainly double it next time. I added less sugar because I do not like overly sweet cakes and frostings. I also left out some of the puree. Once together I refrigerated it for better consistency. Next time I'll add cornstarch for it to have more body. Read More
