Cream cheese frosting is our favorite for just about any cake. It's a little bit tangy, a smidge salty and not too sweet. Plus, it's a breeze to whip up in your stand mixer with SideSwipe. Only about a minute with room temperature ingredients. Why would you want to use that canned stuff from the store?
We frequently halve this recipe for a small size cake, as shown on the heart-shaped cake at the bottom of this post. It's the equivalent of a single, 9-inch layer.
The full recipe yields 2 cups of cream cheese frosting. You can use this recipe to lightly frost a double layer cake, lightly frost 24 cupcakes, generously frost 12-14 cupcakes, or frost a 9x13 cake. If you like sky-high frosting, you may also want to add a bit more powdered sugar for more definition and stability in your piping.
Once frosted, keep your cake in the fridge until ready to serve.
