Today my sister and parents came over after church to hang out. I was craving something sweet (what else is new?) so I decided to bake a cake. And not just any cake, mind you, but a cherry chip cake (from Betty Crocker, super moist and yummy) and homemade cream cheese frosting that I did from scratch – so much better than the canned stuff.
Here is a picture of it:
Doesn't it look pretty? It was soooo good and I knew I'd be tempted to eat pretty much the whole thing so I made them take some home so that all that was left was this. Not too bad....
Beat together 8 ounces of softened cream cheese, 1/2 cup melted butter or margarine, and 2 teaspoons vanilla until light and fluffy. Add 2 cups of powdered sugar, beating well. Add 1 teaspoon milk and approximately 2 1/2 more cups of powedered sugar until spreading consistency is reached.
I always add more sugar or milk, depending on the consistency I want the frosting to be, so you can adjust that as you need to. If you decide to try it I'm sure you'll love it!
