Sweet and Savory Sundays: Light Cream Cheese Frosting

Pin It PIN IT!

I was extremely excited and motivated to bake a cake tonight. I had a fabulously delicious concoction in my head and I couldn’t WAIT to try it out. Well, as I gathered my ingredients I noticed I was missing two essential ones; butter and eggs.  I could have gone to the store but it’s about 15 degrees outside and I’m in my pjs. So it had to be plan B. I was craving something sweet and these cravings must not go unsatisfied. So after I scoured my fridge and pantry, I found the proper ingredients to whip up another delicious and light dessert; cream cheese frosting! Now, I’ve been known to eat frosting alone and this is delicious enough to dig right in with a spoon, but I had a better idea. Instead of spoon feeding myself, I dipped some fresh strawberries in it! The tangy and creamy texture of the frosting with the juicy and sweet taste of the strawberry make for one delectable and healthy dessert!

    Stop it with your delicious cream cheese frosting dipped strawberries. Just STOP. In no way would I ever eat 25 of those as well as slather the cream cheese frosting all of my body while bathing in it. Never. Not a chance.

    I love creamed cheese! Last night I didn't have any strawberries or sweet fruit so I dipped CUCUMBER into creamed cheese, lol. Your strawberries look so much tastier :)
