Cream Cheese Frosting

This wonderful cream cheese frosting is very rich. Once made, cream cheese icing needs to be refrigerated and keeps for 4-5 days.

This cupcake frosting is a perfect partner for just about any cupcake recipe. You can play around with the quantities of butter and cream cheese to achieve a unique flavor.

I would recommend serving this frosting with red velvet, banana, or carrot cupcakes. I also think this frosting is the perfect topping for a gingerbread cupcake.

If you add a little extra confectioners sugar the frosting will become a little stiffer and this makes it perfect for piping decorations onto cupcakes.

Another suggestion is to replace lemon rind with 2 tbsp. of honey for a sweeter taster.
