This is without doubt the best cream cheese frosting EVER!!!
I was in the middle of making it and realized I didn't have whipping cream, I didn't even have whole milk, so I used what I had, Lactaid skim milk and I did add a cup of Cool Whip...it was so delicious. The Cool Whip made it really creamy and cut the heaviness of the cream cheese and butter.
Not only did it taste wonderful, it piped out beautifully. Thank you so much for this recipe.
I made the Coconut version of this frosting and all i can say is forget the cake just enjoy the frosting. It is the best ever made. Thank you so very much for sharing this wonderful recipe.
OUTSTANDING frosting!!! I've tried cream cheese frostings before and they have always ended up runny, but this frosting held its shape beautifully and was so tasty!! I used this frosting to top Easy Red Velvet Cupcakes or Cake. I used Wilton's clear vanilla to keep the frosting white. Thanks Kitten for another homerun!! :)
I am giving this recipe 4-stars for the version without the optional whipped topping. I wish I had stopped, and not added that ingredient as it tainted the icing with artificial flavoring. I ended up throwing out the icing. Next time I make it I will definitely omit the whipped topping.
This was amazing and so delicious! I made it to frost another Kittencal recipe (pumpkin cupcakes) and it was just evil. I didn't do the extra creamy option and only had milk, but it still turned out fantastic. I'll never use another cream cheese frosting recipe again. Thank you!
Like some of the other reviewers, I also had to add over a cup of extra sugar to this, to achieve the desired consistency. At that level of modification, it's no longer true to the original recipe, so I don't understand how people can still rate it 5* after claiming such a drastic change. I rate this recipe 2* if made as is.
This frosting turned out perfect for my red velvet cupcakes. One recipe was just right for swirled frosting for 24 cupcakes. The frosting set up nicely when refrigerated.
Cream cheese frosting is and always has been my absolute favorite so I finally decided it was time to make my own (well with the help of a recipe of course). I tried this last week and was absolutely in love! SO GOOD! I frosted about 28 Red velvet cupcakes with this and had enough to do many more. The flavor was amazing. Maybe the best I have ever had! I served them at a girls night I had with some of my friends and they were gone by the next morning. Not to mention I have 3 requests to make this frosting over the next few weeks. If I didn't love it so much I'd object!
Great stuff! Loved the consistency and I can't wait to play around with flavors/extracts. Thanks for another perfect recipe!
Amazing frosting. I subbed some cocoa powder for a bit of the powdered sugar, and I did the extra creamy addition of Cool Whip (even though I normally never use the stuff). Used frosting to top mini devil's food cupcakes. Turned out fabulous!
