Amazing Frosting–white and chocolate

26 May

This frosting is really by far one of the better ones I’ve made.  People were literally coming up to me and saying, “I never eat the extra frosting on the side of my plate, but I’m licking this stuff off.”  It’s really that good and one of the great things about it is that I have a chocolate frosting recipe for it too!   I’ve been looking for a good one for so long and I’ve finally found one!  Yay!

White Frosting:

1 cup butter

4 oz cream cheese

2 pounds powdered sugar (32 oz bag)

2 1/2 T vanilla

2 tsp. almond extract

1 tsp. coconut extract

1/4 cup evaporated milk

ALMOND EXTRACT (this is key–you don’t want to add too much, but you need enough for the flavor–start with 1 tsp, but add more if needed)

Food Coloring (if you want a different color of frosting)

I used my Kitchen Aid and whipped together the butter and cream cheese.  Slowly add in the powdered sugar, milk, vanilla and almond.  Once you like the consistency (you can add more milk or more sugar–just taste as you go along), add the food coloring.  This frosting WILL NOT disappoint.  It’s really fabulous and I highly recommend it.  I actually modified it from a friend’s recipe blog–they made Churro Cupcakes and used this frosting.

To frost I use a ziplock bag and a coupler (SO EASY).  You actually don’t even need a coupler for these, just cut of the end of a ziplock and go to town 🙂

I used this same recipe to make my chocolate frosting for Jeremy’s birthday cake.  It turned out perfectly and people loved the frosting too.  I definitely recommend this recipe–so yummy!

Chocolate Frosting:

Make the frosting the same as above, except add 1/4 cup cocoa powder.  You might want to leave out the almond and taste as you go along.  Add a little more milk and there you have it…fabulous chocolate frosting!

I think the key to this recipe is having the cream cheese in there.  You don’t taste it, but it gives a really yummy smoothness to the frosting.  Yum, yum!  I also used this to frost sugar cookies and they were so yummy!
