Cream Cheese Frosting and Confectioners Sugar

I want to share with you this recipe since is my favorite frosting.

The other day I was craving cake like I never do, let's say I don't really have a sweet tooth. But I don't know what took over me that I had to make a cake and there's no cake with a good frosting.

Besides the thought of going back to the store made me want to improvise and I'm so glad it worked out. The result is smooth and creamy frosting full of flavor and sweetness perfect for your cake or cupcakes. I won't make this any longer and let's get started with the ingredients and how to prepare it.

You are going to need: 

  • -1 cup cream cheese (softened to room temperature)
  • -2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • -1/2 cup  unsalted butter (softened to room temperature)
  • -2 tablespoons heavy cream 
  • -1/8 teaspoons salt
  • -2-2.5 cups  confectioners' sugar (SEE BELOW TO LEARN HOT TO MAKE IT AT HOME)
1. Let's Start by mixing/ beating the cream cheese and the butter at medium speed until you get this creamy and soft texture, it might take a couple minutes.
2. Add the confectioner's sugar gradually until you achieve the thickness desired. Add the heavy cream and the vanilla and mix them well for about 2 minutes you can add more sugar if necessary. The last thing you need to add is the salt this is to help balance the sweetness of the frosting.

The process to make the confectioner's sugar is really simple, fast and inexpensive.Below are the ingredients that you are going to need.

-2 cups of sugar
-2 teaspoons of corn starch

Place the sugar in a blender and add the corn starch, mix them until you get this powdery texture, it should take about 2-3 minutes to make.
And now you can store this dry, I used my mason jars.
