A Request for a Recipe!

Catherine wanted to know how I made the Lime Cream Cheese Frosting for my vanilla cake.  Here you are, Catherine:

Lime Cream Cheese Frosting

  • 1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
  • 4 TBSP softened butter
  • 1 (1 lb. Box) confectioners sugar (4 cups?)
  • zest from 1 lime
  • 2 TBSP lime juice (or from 1 lime, whichever is less)

In a large mixing bowl, whip butter and cream cheese together with a hand-held mixer. Gradually beat in the confectioners sugar until thoroughly combined and smooth. Beat in the zest and juice.

Yield: enough to generously frost a 9 x 13 sheet cake, with extra leftover for a few cupcakes.

Like these:
