Cream cheese frosting
- Preparation and cooking time
- Will cover a 18cm cake (approx 8 people)
Whip up this easy cream cheese frosting for icing classic bakes like carrot cake, cinnamon buns, chocolate cake or cupcakes
- STEP 1
Beat the softened butter to a soft and even consistency. Add the orange juice, if using, then the icing sugar. Cream until you have a smooth, soft buttercream consistency.
- STEP 2
Add the cream cheese and work it in – don’t beat it in, just slowly mix with a wooden spoon. Depending on how soft the mixture is, you may want to put it in the fridge for 10 mins at this point. If it’s runny, it will firm up again. It should be spreadable and not run off the cake.
