I used this cream cheese frosting recipe on my red velvet cake. You can add fresh orange, lemon, or lime zest to this recipe to change it up.
- 16 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
- 16 ounces unsalted butter, room temperature
- 2 cups of confectioner's sugar, sifted
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
Place cream cheese and butter in mixer fitted with the wire whip attachment; whip on medium speed till combined and smooth. Gradually add sugar; beat till smooth. Add vanilla and lemon juice and blend.
