White Chocolate Cream Cheese Buttercream Frosting

Tips: Use unsalted sweet butter. Unsalted sweet butter has a higher melting point than salted butter and this prevents your frosting from becoming too soft. Also, adding 1-2 tablespoons of Meringue Powder to frosting recipes acts as a stabilizer, keeping shortening and other liquids from separat­ing, especially in hot weather.
