Easy and delicious.
When I decided to make this recipe for a simple cream cheese buttercream frosting, I had no idea just how scrumchilleeumtious (scrum-chilly-um-shus aka extraordinarily scrumptious) it would turn out!
This frosting is so creamy, and rich in cream cheese flavor, it really does just melt in your mouth with heavenly goodness! The delicious flavors blend, and balance so well together. It pairs oh so wonderfully with carrot cake, red velvet cake, anything pumpkin, and yeah pretty much anything if you ask me! (Well, maybe not anything haha).
Not only is this honestly the best cream cheese frosting I have ever had, it is super easy to whip together since it has just 3 simple ingredients making it a winning combo.
Cream Cheese Buttercream Frosting
Vegan, Gluten Free, Grain-Free
Yield: ~2 cups
1/4 cup vegan cream cheese, room temp (I recommend Tofutti)
1/4 cup vegan butter, room temp/softened
2 cups vegan, gluten free powdered sugar (more makes thicker/sweeter frosting)
In a large bowl or mixer blend butter and cream cheese together.
Add in powdered sugar one cup at a time, and continue to mix until well frosting is well combined.
If frosting is too dry add in a small splash of milk and blend until consistency is smooth and creamy.
Chill for best results. Enjoy!
