Cream Cheese Frosting



This Cream Cheese Frosting is a classic on Carrot Cake but is delicious on a banana cake or any fruit based cake.  I used this to frost and decorated an 8-inch square Carrot Cake.  I believe Bunny approves.


Cream Cheese Frosting
1- 250 gram (8 oz) package cream cheese, room temperature
½ cup butter, room temperature
2 cups icing sugar, sifted if lumpy
1 teaspoon vanilla

In mixer bowl, combine cream cheese and butter.  Beat until well combined.  Add icing sugar.  Combine on low speed.  Increase speed and beat until fluffy. Add vanilla and mix until combined.  If frosting seems too thin add a little more icing sugar. 

This is enough to frost the top and sides of a 9"x13" cake or enough to fill and frost two 8" or 9" layers.
