This recipe delivers a basic cream cheese frosting using just butter, cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, and vanilla.
Chef John's Cream Cheese Frosting
This is the frosting I use on delicious red velvet cupcakes. Is this the easiest recipe I've ever done? Maybe!
Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting
A decadent whipped cream and cream cheese frosting that has everyone asking if they can lick the bowl. It pipes very well.
Strawberry (Jam!) Cream Cheese Frosting
This foolproof frosting keeps it simple. While very sweet, it's just the thing to balance the natural flavor of a homestyle scratch cake recipe. I used it the first time to lighten up a cake made with a heavy whole grain white flour. Uh-mazing!
Cream Cheese Frosting with Brown Butter and Bourbon
This frosting pairs perfectly with banana, carrot, and spice cakes. Browning the butter gives it a deep, nutty flavor. As with many buttercreams, you may need slightly more or less sugar to reach your desired consistency.
Creamy Cream Cheese Frosting
Great frosting that has cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, and whipped topping.
Maple Cream Cheese Frosting
This traditional, delicious cream cheese frosting has a maple syrup twist. This yielded enough for me to fill and lightly frost a 12 inch square cake.
Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting
This is a YUMMY whipped cream frosting that is very stable and does not melt at room temperature unlike many standard whipped cream frostings. It also makes a GREAT dip for fresh fruit -- not too sweet, just right! This recipe is GREAT for a stand mixer but will work with any good mixer.
Cinco de Chili Chocolate Cupcakes with Chili Cream Cheese Frosting
Dark chocolate cupcakes with a bite! Topped with Chili Cream Cheese Frosting. This recipe was inspired from a combination of recommendations from AR Buzzers. Thanks all! They were a huge hit at our annual Chili Cook-off. Many wanted THEM to be allowed as an entry. Add more chili and cayenne powder to taste. (IF YOU CAN TAKE IT!)
