Cream cheese frosting is easy to make and makes even a simple cake taste special!
This is my favorite frosting recipe. I use it for all kinds of cakes and cupcakes. It is a no fail, easy recipe. It works for really nice fancy cakes, but it also makes a simple box cake seem special.
I use this on carrot or spice cakes. I use it on my banana bars. It works well for chocolate cake and also cupcakes. You really can’t go wrong with this frosting.
I can’t remember the last time I bought a can of frosting at the store. This recipe is so good and easy. I would much rather make it at home. If you have never made homemade frosting give this a try. You won’t go back to the stuff in a can.
My chocolate version works great for chocolate or yellow cakes. It is also really good.
