Frangelico-Cream Cheese Icing

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by grovinchicken

This was a late night creation. I had a cake that needed a quick fix and little booze (yes booze). I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we have. If you have children, use Hazelnut flavoring instead of the Frangelico. I have had to sub the booze for children's cakes. It works fine--might want to add a wee-bit extra though.THE POWDERED SUGAR MEASUREMENT IS A CLOSE APPROXIMATION. USE MORE OR LESS FOR DESIRED THICKNESS......this is enough icing for 9x11 cake.

DELICIOUS! I would suggest to add 1-1/2 cup more powdered sugar. I put it on banana bread cupcakes and it was a lil piece of heaven!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Take softened cream cheese and softened butter beat with mixer until it becomes smooth and well blended.
  2. Add powdered sugar little at a time to make sure it gets incorporated. After you have added about half of sugar, you can pour in the Frangelico. Add the rest of the powdered sugar.
  3. Once all the ingredients are blended, mix on high until you get your desired thickness. If it is too thin, just add more powdered sugar (little goes a way). If it's too thick, add more Frangelico to the icing (little goes a way).
  4. Lick the beater when done--gotta taste the yummy goodness!
