How to Make Basic Cream Cheese Frosting by Lady Rose
- In a medium size bowl, beat butter and cream cheese together till blended, then add sifted powdered sugar and beat again gradually increasing speed of beater as you go. Add vanilla extract and milk if needed. Beat till blended then proceed to frost cake.
- Note for a nutty flavor add toasted or chopped nuts to frosting. Or Melt 1 cup of semi sweet milk chocolate pieces and add to frosting then stir to blend and frost cake as desired. This is the recipe I use for my husband and daughters favorite carrot cake.
