I have found my new frosting recipe. I usually switch between a basic buttercream or a cream cheese frosting for my cupcakes. So you can imagine how excited I was when I found a recipe for Cream Cheese Buttercream Frosting. It was PERFECT! It held up amazing and had the slight hint of both a cream cheese frosting and a buttercream. It was absolutely the best of both worlds.
Cream Cheese Buttercream Frosting
1/2 cup salted butter (softened)
1/4 cup shortening
8 oz. cream cheese (softened)
1 Tbsp. vanilla
2 pounds powdered sugar
1 Tbsp. milk (mine was too thick for my liking so I added this)
Cream butter and shortening until smooth. Cut up cream cheese and add. Let mix until smooth. Add vanilla and powdered sugar. Blend until ingredients are smooth.
