Cream Cheese Frosting

As mentioned in my Red Velvet Cupcakes post, cream cheese frosting just simply perfects the taste and provides the perfect balance to the richness (if that’s a word) of the cupcake with its sweet and tangy (the good type of tang) and oh-so delectable flavour.

I’m not going to ramble too much…here you go 🙂

Ingredients:

– 100-120g softened butter

– 1 tub cream cheese

– 2 cups icing sugar

– 1 tsp lemon juice

– 1 tsp vanilla essence

 

Method:

– Simple….just whip it all together until well combined and voila!

Enjoy!

Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

Chocolate…hmmmm…yum, yum, yummmmm!! I actually can’t believe there people who can’t stand chocolate…To all those people…I will never understand you! 🙂 Just kidding, you are the reason why there’s more than enough chocolate for me 🙂

Focus Saadiyah, focus…ok so I’m convinced this chocolate buttercream frosting tastes exactly like the frosting which tops the little Woolworths chocolate cupcakes…I love the fact that you include real chocolate in this frosting, which gives the traditional buttercream frosting a bit of a twist.

White Chocolate Buttercream Frosting

The best part of any cupcake is definitely the frosting and there are just so many options and variations, from melted chocolate to traditional buttercream icing. To give the traditional frosting a bit of a twist I decided to try the White Chocolate Buttercream frosting, and here’s how I did it…

Ingredients:

125g butter

4 cups icing sugar

3 tbs milk

100g white chocolate (I used Cadbury Dream)

Method:

1. Melt the white chocolate in the microwave (remember to keep monitoring and stirring). Set aside.

2. Cream the butter with an electric mixer until soft.

3. Gradually add two cups of icing sugar and the milk, and mix until combined.

4. Add the rest of the icing sugar and mix thoroughly.

5. Lastly, stir in the white chocolate.

NB: Add more milk if the icing is too thick.

Remember to have fun with your piping and decorations!

Happy Frosting! 🙂
