Cream Cheese Heaven

Those beautiful bakery cupcakes always looks so intimidating...How does one swirl the frosting and get it to look THAT good?

Plus, the bakery frosting never is good enough to want to eat an inch of it.

Well, believe it or not the first picture on this page is a picture of bakery cup cakes.

This one,

 is a picture of cupcakes I made.

And the frosting really is good enough to eat an inch.
You might even want  more than that :)

Cream Cheese Frosting

-1Cup butter (softened)
-2 8oz. packages of cream cheese, softened
-8 cups sifted confectioners' sugar
-2 T. Milk
-1 T. orange juice
-1 t. orange zest


In a medium mixer bowl, cream butter and cream cheese together until smooth. Add sugar one cup at a time and milk. Mix well. Beat in high until smooth (only 30 seconds to 1 minute). Thin to cake smooth; use full strength for piping borders. 


Lots of Love,
