I have watched DC Cupcakes a few times and love the look of Georgetown Cupcakes, I wish I could taste them though. Cream cheese frosting is perfect paired with carrot cake or red velvet cake. This recipe is enough for approx 12-16 cupcakes.

For this recipe you will need:
1/2 stick/2oz/50grams unsalted butter
150/6oz soft cheese such as Philadelphia
4cups/440grams icing sugar, sifted
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
As you can see, this is so easy to make. If you don’t have a stand mixer then you can still make this using a spatula or electric hand mixer.
Tip: to make it a little easier, bring the butter and cream cheese to room temperature by taking them out of the fridge about and hour before you are going to make it. This frosting keeps well, watch the best before date on your ingredients though and it should be good for about a week.
Look out for DC Cupcakes; its fun especially when they have a special project and the relationship between the sisters is cute. I don’t like that it can seem very staged and Katherine’s ‘valley girl’ accent is so annoying!
Love & Cupcakes,
