Frosting Recipe

Since some of you have asked, here it is:

1 80z cream cheese
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar

1) Place 1 mixing bowl in the freezer for 10-15 min
2) Beat cream cheese with granulated sugar, vanilla extract and almond extract till smooth in a separate non-frozen bowl
3) Whip heavy cream and powdered sugar in the frozen bowl till stiff (I used my kitchen aid on high, you could use a hand mixer)
4) Pour the whipped cream mixture on top of the cream cheese mixture and beat on low till combined.

Hint - if you feel like the frosting gets runny or might just melt all over you, you can slowly add in a couple packages of gelatin while whipping up the heavy whipping cream in step 3. I have found that it's alright without doing that.


  1. Looks FABULOUS! Cream cheese is always a happy thing. Thanks for posting it!

  2. That looks much better than the Crisco job. Thanks for sharing!
