Honey Italian Cream Cheese Frosting
  • 8 oz pkg of Cream Cheese
  • 1/4 cup of honey for tangy or 1/3 cup for sweet
  • 4 Tb unsalted Butter
  • 1/2 tsp. Vanilla
  1. make sure your butter and cream cheese are at about 65 degrees (it whips better that way)
  2. Place cream cheese and butter in a bowl and beat with an elcectric mixer until blended.
  3. Add honey & vanilla; beating till light and fluffy.
  4. Apply liberally, and I DO mean liberally to the cake of your choice
When I use this on Honey Nut Carrot cake I always make a triple batch. After all, isn't carrot cake REALLY just a vehicle for cream cheese frosting?
