What Is Frosting?

The frosting is a thick and fluffy coating on the outside of a cake. Its texture is usually creamy. It tastes like butter. Cream cheese frosting is super soft to touch. When you taste it, you will get a thick, sweet, and gooey cream simply melting in your mouth.

Frosting or Icing?

Frosting and icing can be used interchangeably. However, to be more specific, icing usually has a thin texture. It is used as a layer within the cake. Also, icing is perfect to glaze over baked goods. Its basic ingredient is sugar.

On the other hand, frosting is thicker than icing. It has to include fats which make its texture fluffier than icing. It is used to coat the cake or form swirling shapes on top. You can add food color to make the cream more appealing.

If you do not have a piping tip, you should not worry. First, set your cream cheese frosting in a zip lock bag and cut its lower edge the same size as a tip. The shape will differ, but it will still look beautiful.

The second way is to use a long knife. Scoop the frosting directly on top of the cake. Then, smooth it out to form an even layer. Keep moving the cream cheese frosting till it reaches the edge of the cake. Decorate it with fruits. Divine!

Tips to Make the Best Cream Cheese Frosting

In my recipe, I have set the ingredients for a medium consistency. But, you can adjust it to your liking.

If you like your frosting to be looser, closer to icing, simply add 1 tablespoon of milk at a time until desired consistency is achieved.

However, if you like your icing to be thicker, simply add 1 tablespoon of sugar at a time until desired consistency is achieved.

If you want it to be thicker but not extra sweet, you can add a teaspoon of cornstarch or more until it has the texture you like.
