This came from my aunt who loves cake. It is a little different from a buttercream frosing as it has cream cheese in it, but it is delicious.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt the chocolate.
  2. Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl, saving the cream to add slowly as it may not need all of the 1/3 cup, but maybe it will.
  3. Beat till smooth and fluffy.
  4. Frost your cake.

I made this recipe on 12/08/09 to frost Recipe#303163. Reading through this recipe, I was a bit confused on the powdered sugar. Should it be measured first then sifted, or should it be sifted then measured ? So, I measured then sifted. I also wasn't sure if the cream cheese should be softened or not. So, I softened it at room temp. for about 30 minutes. Even before adding the liquid, it was so runny that I had to add more sugar to get thick enough to spread. My SO seemed to like it, but to me it was just o.k. Thanks for posting.

I used this frosting for my DD's birthday cake and the kids ate the cake like crazy! I will be using this when I make cakes often!
