This is the world’s easiest frosting. It’s super tasty, not too sweet, doesn’t use refined sugar, and goes well with carrot cake, gingerbread, banana cake, or any spice cake, including Apple Sauce Cranberry Cake.
Take the word of these two experts – it’s beyond delicious.
Larksong’s Honey Cream Cheese Frosting
1 stick unsalted butter, softened
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup honey (I used local, organic lavender honey)
1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
Directions: In your Kitchenaid stand mixer, with the whisk attachment, beat cream cheese and butter until whipped and fluffy. Beat in honey and vanilla until fully combined and fluffy. Makes enough to spread one two-layer 8-9 inch cake (middle and top only, not sides).
If the kitchen is warm, or you are taking the cake to a warm place, I recommend chilling the frosted cake in the fridge until ready to serve.
