Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting

8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
food coloring

In a large bowl, beat together the vanilla, cream cheese, food dye and confectioners sugar until smooth. Add more confectioners sugar in 2 tablespoon increments if you want or need a stiffer or sweeter frosting.

My thoughts:

A basic vanilla cream cheese frosting.



  1. How do you get your frosting to that consistency? Mine always comes out a little runny even if I continue to add more sugar.I don’t know where I’m going wrong.

  2. Hmmm. Is your cream cheese maybe too soft? Is it full fat cream cheese?

  3. My neighbor made this cake and brought some over. It’s so cute and yummy too. 🙂

  4. Fabulous cupcakes!

  5. They look adorable and perfect for halloween
