TIPS FOR A LIGHT AND FLUFFY FROSTING
- Good ingredients “real” butter not margarine
- Room temperature ingredients
- Be patient…you’ll need to whip the frosting at least 3 to 5 minutes (sometimes I do this step twice). This will allow air to incorporate into the butter and create the lightness you want.
- That’s it! It’s really not as hard as you might think
I love making cupcakes and cake from scratch, but if you find yourself in a time crunch or you don’t feel like messing with making the cupcakes or cake and the frosting from scratch. PLEASE make the frosting! You can add things to a cake mix to help with the flavor but there’s just nothing like homemade frosting.

You can freeze frosting? Making homemade cupcakes and frosting just got a whole lot easier! To freeze your frosting: Spoon the frosting into a labeled zip top bag and freeze. When ready to use, place the bag on the counter to come to room temperature. Spoon into a large mixing bowl. Whip on medium high for 3 to 5 minutes. This is to incorporate air into the frosting for a light and fluffy texture.
- 3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 (8 ounce) cream cheese, softened
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 5 cups powdered sugar
Cream together the butter and cream cheese (3 minutes). Add the vanilla and powdered sugar. Continue beating an additional 3 minutes or until the frosting is light and fluffy. Store frosted baked goods in the refrigerator.
