Black Walnut Frosting

Let's just talk about gourmet frostings for a moment. You can take an extraordinary frosting and dress up an every day cupcake with it. Or you can put an extraordinary cupcake over the top with an extraordinary frosting. And this frosting is one of those out of this world, extra-special frostings.

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Nut extract
  • 1/2 tsp Black Walnut extract
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  1. Beat cream cheese, butter, and extracts in a medium bowl until smooth.

  2. Add powdered sugar, 1/2 cup at a time, beating until frosting is of a spreading consistency.
