The two recipes in the videos below are presentations for e-How. 

Heavy cream is whipped up in a separate bowl until stiff and then folded gently into the whipped cream cheese, sugar and vanilla. The results of this simple icing are, fluffier texture and a deliciously rich creamy taste. Use it as a filling in wedding cakes, as a topping for cupcakes or on an all occasion cake.

Ideas for Cream Cheese Icing Recipes 

  • Chocolate and Cream Cheese go great together. Simply add either melted bittersweet or semi sweet  chocolate to taste to your finished frosting and stir until completely mixed in. Or you can use sifted cocoa to make a very rich chocolatey filling/icing.
  •  Add a touch of Almond extract for more depth of flavor.
  • Try the browned butter cream cheese frosting recipe. It's a new flavor sensation that I think you will love.
  • The classic carrot cake cream cheese recipe with a squeeze of lemon can't be beat for carrot and banana tortes.
