Do you remember my Best Home Made Cream Cheese I posted a while back. Apart from using it for cheese cake shots, I also used it to make frosting for my cakes. I have been getting so many requests for the cream cheese frosting recipes and it is time to give it. I have demonstrated three types of frosting with the cream cheese. If you are not interested in making it at home, use the store bought one. But nothing can beat the home made one.
Cream cheese frosting is slightly different from the normal frosting we use. It has a slight tang from the cheese which gives a very nice flavour to the final frosting. And cream cheese is so versatile. In these three recipes, I have made one using cream, one using butter and one using chocolate. Of all the three chocolate was my favourite. Though I have shown only the dark chocolate frosting, you can also use white chocolate to make white chocolate cream cheese frosting. I am sure you will find this post useful.
Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting:
Cream Cheese – 1/2 cup
Whipping Cream (dairy/ non dairy) – 1/2 cup
Sugar – 4 tbs (if using unsweetened whipping cream)
In a bowl beat chilled whipping cream until stiff peaks form.
If using dairy cream add sugar tsp at a time while whipping.
In another bowl whip cream cheese until creamy.
Now add the whipped cream in two or three batches to the cheese and fold it gently with a spatula.
Once completely incorporated, you can use it to frost cakes.
White / Dark Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting:
Cream Cheese – 1/2 cup
Sugar – 2 tbs
Dark / White Chocolate Ganache – 1/2 cup
Vanilla Essence – 1/2 tsp
In a bowl cream together cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until nice and fluffy.
Add the ganache and beat until all the ingredients are incorporated.
Use it as a filling and frosting for cakes.
Cream Cheese Butter Cream :
Cream Cheese – 1/4 cup
Butter – 1/4 cup
Icing Sugar – 2 cups
Vanilla – 1/2 tsp
In a bowl cream together butter and cream cheese until pale and creamy.
Add sifted icing sugar in two or three batches and beat until incorporated. Do not over beat.
Once the consistency is reached, add vanilla and beat until well combined.
Use it for filling, frosting and decorating cakes.
