Cream cheese frosting is an old standby. It works on a bunch of different types of cupcakes including Strawberry Cream Cheese, Carrot Cake, Red Velvet, and more. And all it takes is a yummy but easy recipe such as this.
4 cups powdered sugar
2 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, room temp
1 stick unsalted butter (1/2 cup), room temp
4 tsp real vanilla extract
Using an electric or stand mixer, beat ingredients in medium bowl until smooth and creamy.
