Buttercream Cream Cheese Frosting

This is a very basic buttercream with cream cheese icing that will work on many different types of cakes and cupcakes. For a thinner icing use the lesser amount of powdered sugar,  for a stiffer icing you'll want to use 4 cups or more.

Recipe: Buttercream Cream Cheese Frosting

©From the Kitchen of Deep South Dish
Prep time: 10 min | Yield: About 4 to 6 servings

Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup of unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 4 cups or more of powdered sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons of milk, or more or less, as needed
Instructions

Cream the butter and cream cheese together until smooth. Add 3 cups of the powdered sugar, along with the vanilla, lemon juice and only as much milk as is required to make it workable. Whip on medium speed for about 3 minutes, adjusting the powdered sugar and milk to reach the desired consistency.

Variation: For plain buttercream, omit the cream cheese and increase butter to 1 cup. To make it a white buttercream, use 1/2 cup of pure vegetable shortening and 1/2 cup of butter and substitute a clear vanilla extract.
