This is my go to recipe for cream cheese frosting. I have used this frosting for so many different kinds of cakes including, chocolate, strawberry, carrot, pumpkin, vanilla and banana. It’s delicious, creamy and has just the right amount of sweetness.

 I made this smash cake for a friend and doubled the frosting recipe since it uses a good bit of icing on the outside and between the two layers. You can learn how to do rose frosting on youtube like this one. I usually use an open star tip for this type of frosting.

 Always put your cake in the fridge after you frost it so it can set. It just takes a little bit of practice but you’ll get the hang of it!

I did a similar type of piping for the cupcakes. 

If you’re thinking of making a special dessert for Valentines Day, try learning how to frost or pipe the icing using this recipe. You could make the double chocolate chip banana bread recipe into cupcakes with this frosting. When I first started piping, my frosting looked like swirls of poop on cupcakes. Hey, you gotta start somewhere!

Thanks for reading!
