Cream Cheese Buttercream Frosting

Everyone needs a perfect Cream Cheese frosting in their arsenal of recipes.  If you still have not found "the one", HERE IT IS! 

I use to buy the store made cream cheese frosting (gasp!), but since finding this recipe a few years back, I never want to see store bought cream cheese frosting again!! (well, never is a strong word, but if I can help it I will always make this recipe!)

Cream Cheese Buttercream Frosting
Pin It
2 packages (8 oz. each) Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
4 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon milk

Beat the cream cheese and butter together until combined well.  Add the powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk and beat again.

This recipe makes a lot.  It will frost 24+ cupcakes piping it on (like the above picture), if you are just going to spread it on cupcakes you could half the recipe and have plenty. 

It is perfect on Pumpkin Bars & Spice & Carrot cakes/cupcakes.  It is also delicious on Chocolate and Vanilla cakes/cupcakes (pictured is on a vanilla cake & it was delicious!!)
