Recipe by SweetnSaucy

I used to work as an event planner for weddings, so have tasted my fair shair of frostings. I dislike overly sweet and need more flavor outside of just sugar. Only one pastry chef made an icing I was excited to eat but she guarded her recipe with her life and would not share. Luckily, I found this recipe tucked away in an old Real Simple magazine and it is EXACTLY what I remember, if not better. It is perfect and pairs well with any kind of cake or muffin: carrot, pumpkin, red velvet, etc. and I've even had success with this icing on the tops of breads too: parsnip, zucchicni or date.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat the cream cheese, honey, confectioners’ sugar, and salt in a bowl with an electric mixer on medium-high until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. That's it! Enjoy!
