Cream Cheese Buttercream Frosting
I know what your thinking – ANOTHER Cream Cheese Frosting recipe? Yes INDEED!!

Red Velvet Cupcakes

I don’t think you can ever have one too many variations of recipes to choose from.  I have 3 cream cheese frosting recipes on my blog, all of which are slightly different from one another, yet all super easy and delicious.  This Cream Cheese Buttercream Frosting has such a beautifully smooth creamy texture, due the addition of the ‘butter’.  Speaking of which, I cannot stress how important it is to ensure that both your butter and cream cheese are at room temperature – unless you prefer lumpy frosting.  This frosting is AMAZING for just about any cake or cupcake, especially my Red Velvet Cupcakes!  View the recipe demonstration below!
