Not too sweet, smooth and creamy instead of grainy and sugary. This frosting firms up in the fridge and doesn't melt if left at room temperature. Bonus is that once chilled it won't stick to plastic wrap so feel free to cover it without the fear of losing all the frosting! This only takes minutes if using pre-whipped cream cheese. This recipe will cover one 13x9 sheet cake or one prepared packaged cake mix.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine about 1/2 the marshmallow creme with the cream cheese in a bowl; mix thoroughly with a fork (or use beaters if not using pre-whipped cream cheese).
  2. Taste; continue adding remaining marshmallow creme a little at a time until the desired sweetness (we like to use about 3/4 of the jar).
  3. Mix thoroughly and spread over a cooled cake.
  4. Chill if desired.

Wonderful flavor and easy to make. I added 1/2 tsp. of vanilla.

This frosting has great possibilities. Easy to make and stays fresh longer than the cake. I found it to not be sweet enough, but then I'd eat a rose off of a wedding cake. I added 1/4 cup vanilla sugar the second time and it was perfect. It is so simple you can really jazz it up.
