Cream cheese frosting (lump-free)

Cream cheese frosting (lump-free)

This is the BEST cream cheese frosting ever! It’s fresh, creamy and modestly sweet. It pairs beautifully with many pies, cakes and cupcakes like my delicious carrot cupcakes and my banana (chocolate) walnut cake.

This recipe will give you a soft cream cheese frosting which holds it’s shape. But if you want a thicker cream cheese frosting, just add more sugar. You can easily double the amount of sugar.

Another trick for a thicker cream cheese frosting is to add a tablespoon of cornstarch, mix, taste and add one more if needed. Your frosting will get more thick without extra sweetness!

Believe me guys, this cream cheese frosting is so easy to make and really delicious. Enjoy!
