Cream Cheese Frosting

by Sarah on January 15, 2012

What?  I’m posting on a Sunday?  I know, it’s weird.  But I was on the Tee Vee this morning.  I know, again…weird.  More weird that I was up so dang early on a Sunday!  Ha ha hee hee.  I’m not much of an early riser.  I made my semi-famous cream cheese frosting on the show.   I realized when they asked that I don’t have a stand-alone post for cream cheese frosting.  So I figured I better make one.  You know, in case people look for it.  Duh.

I made some other things, for the magic of TV…if anyone is interested in the recipes they are here:  Nana’s Cinnamon Rolls, James Beard’s Onion Sandwiches, Snickerdoodle Cupcake Hack, and Horseradish Deviled Eggs with Candied Bacon.

Here it is, the superstar “perfect” cream cheese frosting.

Cream Cheese Frosting


  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 packages cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups confectioner’s sugar
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla


  • In a mixer, thoroughly mix the butter and cream cheese.
  • Add sugar, lemon juice and vanilla.
  • Mix again.
  • This recipe makes enough frosting for 48 cupcakes, halve if needed.
