Cream cheese is definitely my go to! I used this frosting recently on my Red Velvet Cupcakes and Cinnamon Rolls!!
Serving : 3 cups of frosting
Prep : 15 mins / chill: 15 mins / Total : 30mis
For the cream cheese frosting:
1/2 cup unsalted butter softened to room temperature
1 package cream cheese softened to room temperature
3 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
To make the cream cheese frosting:
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or in a large mixing bowl using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth. Add the butter and mix for about 30 seconds-1 minute until well combined and smooth. Add in the powdered sugar and vanilla extract and continue mixing until fully combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
Once the cupcakes have cooled completely, pipe the frosting on top.
