Cream Cheese Frosting Ingredients

Cream Cheese Frosting Directions

  • Set the butter on the counter for 30 minutes. This will get it slightly cold. While waiting, sift the powdered sugar.
  • Using a mixer, beat the cream cheese on high for 1 minute in a medium sized bowl. Add the butter and mix on high for about 2-3 minutes. Scrape the bowl. It should be a smooth consistency.
  • Slowly add in the powdered sugar. Add in the heavy cream, vanilla, and salt. Mix on low until mixed together. Switch to high and beat for 2 minutes. Use a wooden spoon to beat out the air bubbles.
  • Frost cupcakes with a spatula or piping tip.
  • Garnish with chopped walnuts or cinnamon powder.
  • Enjoy!


Add 1/2 cup of powdered sugar at a time to the frosting and taste before adding more. 

If you are on a sugar free or keto diet, replace sugar with sugar alternative of your choice.
