This is a quick tip I found in my many cut out recipes stashed in a box. Posting here to remember and save. Enjoy Shirl.


  1. Blend the two together to extend the frosting and cut down on the sweetness.

This is excellent!! It worked perfectly on a half sheet cake (bakery size) and held up well without getting runny even on a hot day. I used light cream cheese and whipped it first with a hand mixer, then added name brand chocolate frosting. Delicious!! I had sooo many compliments on this frosting. Everyone wanted to know how I got it so creamy. Best of's so easy peasy with only two ingredients! Thanks for posting Shirley. This is truly a keeper that I don't have to write down.

This worked perfectly. I don't usually buy frosting, but I had a weak moment at the store with my 2 year old so we came home with some to make a cake! I added 1/2 tsp almond extract to the white frosting. Will certainly use this again!
