1 Step Easy Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe With Video

Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe

Cream cheese frosting has always been my favorite. On cinnamon rolls, mixed in with Pop-Tarts, or just on a simple cupcake, it’s my go-to frosting choice. I’ve made various versions in the past, all of which I love (everything shown on this site are successful recipes I’ve made & enjoyed–trust me when I say there have been THOUSANDS that fail!) & I’m always experimenting to find other types. The main reason I like having a variety of different frostings is because I’m lazy. So lazy that I like to just use whatever I have in the house to create a recipe. This makes life easy on you (yay!) because then you have a variety of options & can choose one based on what you have in the house as well!

This latest cream cheese frosting is so delicious & went perfectly with a funfetti cupcake. Why funfetti you ask? Well, does anything not go with it? Don’t think so. This frosting recipe however is flavored with vanilla & is super fluffy which works perfectly with a light funfetti cake. Serve it on top of cupcakes like I did or with an entire funfetti cake. Heck, I won’t judge if you just eat the entire thing straight from the bowl…

    Just watched that video twice… It reminds me of those Tastee videos going around on Facebook these days… fast and simple! I’m pinning this post so I remember to give this frosting a try…

    I didn’t realized Heavy Whipping Cream can stiffen up without other ingredients… was neat seeing the process in the video.

    Thanks for this awesome recipe!
