I make a peanut butter frosting from scratch and was wondering if I could add cream cheese to make the frosting a wee bit more sturdy, yet tasteful.
Cream cheese is one of the top food requirements and most recipes can benefit! Your frosting will be thicker and will also have a richer taste. Be careful to have the cream cheese at room temp or a bit warmer so it mixes well with the frosting.
I add 2 ounces of cream cheese to p.b. frosting for a small single layer cake. If using a double layer, use 4 oz. I have experimented with an 8 oz. but was not pleased with the flavor. Hope this helps!
