Notes

This is a delicious cream cheese frosting for cakes. Cream cheese has a pleasantly tart flavor that complements anything from chocolate to carrot cake. Try substituting Crisco vegetable shortening for the butter for a frosting that develops crusty edges as it sits.

A dash of local for every season
