Cream cheese frosting (and buttercream frosting too) is one of those things where it’s all a game of balance- too little frosting, and the cake tastes boring. But too much frosting and you lose the cake entirely!
I can appreciate a nice frosting- even though I’m definitely a “more cake, less frosting” person! This looks like a great basic recipe for a classic frosting
Thanks for sharing, @Amethyst!
I’m awful, before my diabetes, I could buy a jar of frosting from the store and just eat that as a treat. LOL. Glad you liked this recipe!
Hahaha no judgement there! After all, I can’t point fingers- sometimes I eat sticky mouthfuls of maple syrup and honey right out of the bottles
We all have our sweet indulgences Sometimes happiness comes in a jug of maple syrup of jar of frosting!
