White Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing

This weekend when I went shopping, I finally picked up a tub of Kraft’s new Philadelphia Indulgence, White Chocolate flavor. I was thinking this would be a good treat for my bagel and boy was I wrong. The flavor of the cream cheese was delicious, but for some reason it didn’t go well with my bagel at all, but it did inspire me to create my very first original icing recipe.

 If you haven’t tried this cream yet, it is delicious all by itself. It is so smooth, you could probably eat the whole tub of it right off of the spoon.

Recipe:

2 unsalted butter sticks (room temperature)

1 tsp vanilla

3-4 cups of powdered sugar

1 8oz tub of Philadelphia Indulgence Cream.

I used white chocolate but I am sure the regular chocolate flavor would work as well.

Directions:

  • Cream Butter and Philadelphia Indulgence
  • Add vanilla and mix until blended
  • Add powdered sugar 1 cup at a time until you reach the desired consistency.

I piped this lovely icing atop a devils food cupcake and it seems to be getting rave reviews from the family. I hope you like it. If you decide to give it a try, let me know what you think 😉

Strawberry Cream Cheese Icing

For her birthday, my daughter requested a vanilla cupcake with strawberry frosting. I am so glad I came across the recipe for Pink Confetti Cupcakes by Your Cup of Cake. I thought the recipe for the icing on these would be just perfect.

I followed the recipe exactly as written. I used fresh strawberries and put them through the food processor to make the puree. I wasn’t sure what Lizzy meant by 1 tbsp of  strawberry gelatin, but I just put in the dry gelatin from the box and that seemed to work great.

I used the full 5 cups of powdered sugar that the recipe called for and my icing was still a little bit thin for piping. Next time I will probably use about 6-8 cups of powdered sugar for a stiffer icing.

This icing was the bomb! I have never in my life tasted a strawberry icing that was so fresh with so much flavor. This will definitely be my go to strawberry icing.
