I made some yummy cupcakes for the Super Bowl and I frosted them with green (packers fans) cream cheese frosting. My hubby is not a fan of regular buttercream frosting, and so I always frost my cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.
I don't usually measure my ingredients when making any kind of frosting, I usually just throw it in a bowl and mix it until it's the conisitancy I like. However, yesterday I measured all of my ingredients so I could share it with you.
Cream Cheese Frosting
8 0z softened cream cheese
1 stick of butter
4 cups powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
Cream butter and cream cheese until smooth and add powdered sugar and vanilla. Mix until smooth. Keep refrigerated.
