    So good! I love this frosting. I used it on the chocolate velvet cupcakes as well as a carrot cake I made. Definitely a keeper!

    I agree...absolutely THE BEST frosting ever! It would go great on most any flavor of cake/cupcake I can think of. Pumpkin, banana, vanilla, chocolate, red velvet, carrot cakes...brownies. Shoot, this frosting would taste good on a gym sock. At first when I started beating the butter straight out of the fridge with the cream cheese, I thought the frosting would be too thick and that I would need to add a little milk to it but it turned into the perfect consistency for frosting my cupcakes. I made a 1/2 batch of the frosting and it was perfect for frosting 24 cupcakes with a fairly thick layer of frosting. I will be making this recipe for many years to come.

    This is honestly the best frosting I have ever made, and I have made a LOT of homemade frostings. We used it on gingerbread man cookies (the recipe from the same Southern Living issue) and it was fantastic!

    I bake a lot and simply put, this is the best frosting I've ever made. Period!
