Heavenly Cream Cheese Frosting - Amanda's Recipe
1 - 8 oz. package of regular cream cheese (softened)1 - 8 oz. package of fat free cream cheese (softened)
2 - sticks of butter (salted) so 1/2 a pound (softened)
2 - teaspoons of vanilla
1/4 - teaspoon of popcorn salt
1- 2lb. bag of powdered sugar (sifted)
Cream together the softened butter and cream cheese until smooth. In a small cup, mix the 1/4 teaspoon of popcorn salt with the 2 teaspoons of vanilla, then add to the cream cheese/butter mixture. Once the vanilla salt mixture is thoroughly mixed in begin slowly adding one 2lb. bag of powdered sugar. This recipe will cover two 9 inch round cakes stacked with icing in the middle. I had a bit of icing left over so I tinted it and used it to practice some decorating. This icing smoothed nicely on the cake, but is too thin for decorating. You'll need to refrigerate a cake iced with this icing.
I made a Santa out of fondant. I love him! He's so cute! I really wish I had used my regular butter cream for the decorations. Oh, well, live and learn!
I was trying out scrolls and dots on the side of this cake. I think I've got the star tip down!
This cake is two 9 inch cakes stacked and serves 10-12 people. $27
