Cream cheese Frosting

Hey y’all! I hope you are enjoying your week so far. Today is the first day of spring! My grandmother has been out in the yard playing in her gardens getting them ready for all of the flowers she’ll plant! She loves flowers and this time of year breaths rebirth of a new beauty to enjoy.

Me on the other hand…I have a love hate relationship with this time of year simply because pollen has wreaked havoc on my sinuses. Lol…I love the beautiful flowers though. I’ve learned a lot about flowers since I’ve been decorating cakes. Creating a beautiful Rose from buttercream or fondant & gumpaste can be quite taxing and so satisfying at the same time. Having the consistency just right is always important along with technique of course. The same idea applies when you’re frosting a cake. The idea is to enhance the flavor of the cake. I’ve learned that you may have a cake that initially started out as a pre-made mix but with the right icing, you forget all about the mix. My mom used this cream cheese recipe on her carrot cake and I use it on mine. It’s absolutely amazing! Let me know how this simple recipe enhances your cakes. 


Cream Cheese Frosting

1 8oz bar of Philadelphia cream cheese

1 stick of butter

1 tsp vanilla

4 cup of confectioner’s sugar


1. Cream butter, vanilla, and cream cheese until light and smooth

2. Slowly incorporate the confectioner’s sugar until smooth and creamy.

3. Use at your own discretion. It is habit forming!

Hi, I'm Sheca and cooking is my largest passion. Who says you can't love more than one thing...or at least try other is the love that binds us all together. We all have to eat! So please take some time and cook with those you love. I'm a 40 something mom, daughter, granddaughter, sister, aunt, cousin, and friend. Basically...I'm just like you. The woman who goes to work 40 or more hours per week and still finds the time to cook for those I love. I'm a country girl...a southern country girl at that and proud of was raised in a small town on the coast of North Carolina near the awesome beaches in Brunswick County. You know the place when you drive through and blink, you may just miss it. I'm okay with that. I've come to enjoy the quiet peace that my hometown offers me after a long work day in Wilmington, NC. I'm surrounded by family! Thank you for checking out my blog and I hope you enjoy the information I place here. Maybe even learn something along the way or get a good chuckle or both. Laughter is food for the soul, we all need that in our lives.
