Since I’ve been eating frosting with a spoon for the last several minutes (Blaine iced her own cake, and there was some left over, and it’s so tempting, sitting there in the bowl), I thought I’d share my favorite frosting recipe.
Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting
1 8 oz. package of cream cheese, softened
1 stick of butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
5 cups powdered sugar
5 to 6 Tbsp. cream
1 cup cocoa
Beat the cream cheese and butter together, then add the vanilla and beat some more. Alternate beating in the dry ingredients a bit at a time with the cream until you’ve used all the cocoa and gotten the consistency you desire. (I actually never measure the powdered sugar and doubt I use 5 cups, as I like the icing a bit fluffy.)
If you pair this with a Black Magic Cake (which is amazingly moist due to the coffee), the result will cause most chocolate lovers to have to fight closing their eyes in bliss while consuming.
