Hello everyone, I hope you all are having a great start to your weekend or whatever time it is that you are reading this. Last year right after Thanksgiving I decided to make my family's favorite, gingerbread cake. Now its just my opinion but I think cream cheese frosting goes wonderful with gingerbread cake so much so that I made some cream cheese frosting for it. I know its taken me all this time to write the recipe for you all that would like to print it out or copy it down. I have no good excuse at all to give you on why it took this long either. I could tell you I was abducted by aliens for the past 9 months but I cannot do that since some of you watch my yt videos and follow my mishmawshandotherthings facebook page. So I guess its better late than never for this recipe and believe me there are a lot of these better late than never recipes coming up so be prepared.
8 oz of cream cheese softened or cold really doesn't matter
1 stick of unsalted butter softened (you can nuke it)
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
2 cups or more of powdered sugar, just keep adding the sugar until its at the texture you are looking for.
Blend the cream cheese, butter and vanilla together in a bowl. You can use a hand blender or mixer its really your choice. Now we are going to add the sugar gradually what does that mean you ask; small amounts and mix in between amounts. You want to add about 1/2 cup amounts to the cream cheese concoction. So basically add the 1/2 cup of sugar mix until combined and then add 1/2 cup more sugar mix and so on until you have used your sugar. Now you are ready to frost whatever your heart desires. Its really as simple as that and you don't have to be abducted by aliens to make it either.
