Buttercream Cream Cheese Frosting

January 1, 2017



This is my go to frosting for cupcakes.  Easy to make, easy to pipe onto cupcakes and flavor is fantastic.  This will frost 1 two layer cake or 18 cupcakes.  Enjoy.




1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, room temperature*

¼ tsp. salt

4 cups powdered sugar, divided

1 tsp. vanilla extract

2-3 TBSP heavy cream, or half and half

8 ou. of cream cheese, room temperature



In the bowl of an electric mixer, fitted with the whisk attachment, beat butter, on medium speed, until smooth – about one minute.  Add cream cheese and beat until smooth.  Add salt.  One cup at a time add two cups of the powdered sugar, beating well after each addition.  Add vanilla.  Add 1 TBSP of cream and continue beating.  Add remaining two cups of powdered sugar, one at a time.  Add an additional 1-2 TBSP. of cream until desired consistency.  If piping you will want this frosting a little stiffer.
