Notes

  • If you don't have powdered sweetener, just mix the desired amount of sweetener into a food processor or spice grinder and blitz until the consistency is reached. 
  • Make sure that the cream cheese is at room temperature.
  • Use softened butter and cut into cubes before mixing.
  • Add more cream into the mixture until you are happy with the consistency of the frosting.
  • Add 1/4 cup of cocoa powder to make it chocolate cream cheese frosting.
