Cream Cheese Frosting

Something that I didn’t mention earlier that might be important to know when when it comes to my frosting recipes I’ll list is that I don’t do buttercream. bleh. I prefer cream cheese and whipped frosting over buttercream, and I typically wipe frosting off my cake/cupcakes if they are buttercream.  Crazy, I know.  This cream cheese frosting is just a tad sweet (to my liking) but you can definitely sift in more confectioners’ sugar if you need the rush.
