Total Time
Prep 10 mins

A delicious frosting for any carrot cake Red Velvet Cake. I like to make mine white, but in the Chicago area you often see it tinted pink.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In medium bowl, beat cream cheese and butter on high speed until smooth.
  2. Gradually add powdered sugar and continue beating until spreadable.
  3. Stir in vanilla.
  4. Add pecans, coconut and red food coloring (if desired for Red Velvet Cake).
