Ok, here it is, my go-to, can’t be beat, ultimate cream cheese whipped frosting. I put this on everything now – banana bars (pictured below), carrot cake, muffins, cinnamon buns, etc. If you’ve ever had cinnabun, this is a dead ringer for their frosting (super light and fluffy). Did you catch that? We’re talking clone of cinnabun’s frosting here.
The key to the texture is letting it whip in your mixer for a long time. 12 minutes. If you’re working with a hand mixer, you will not want to do this. There have been days where I haven’t wanted to wait for the stand mixer to go, so just whip it as long as you can stand to with your hand mixer. The taste is the same (delicious), it just won’t be quite as airy.
