Cake is so fun to experiment with and it brings back memories from childhood! All of those countless times you’ve had cake fights with you siblings or even back to the first time you ever baked a cake. The best part about cakes and making cakes is finding the perfect accent… ICING!
Cream cheese icing is absolutely delicious and super easy to add color to. Use cream cheese icing for fun, awesome cupcakes too.
Start out by gathering the necessary ingredients.
- 8 ounces of cream cheese
- 1/2 cup butter (take out in the morning to soften)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla (I like Mexican vanilla, but any vanilla will do the trick)
- 3 cups powdered sugar
If you don’t have powdered sugar available, you can improvise and make it by putting granulated white sugar into a blender or food processor.
Once you have the ingredients, there are 3 simple steps to creating the perfect cream cheese icing.
1. Use a paddle on your mixer and beat the cream cheese and butter until the mixture is completely combined.
