Christmas Cake & Cream Cheese Buttercream



Here's a carrot cake with cream cheese buttercream. This was probably the easiest and fastest cake I have made yet. The icing went on very easily. I will be making more cream cheese frosted cakes.





Cream Cheese Buttercream:

8 oz. cream cheese
4 cups powdered sugar
1/2 c. butter
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix together - this consistency worked very well for frosting the cake and piping the curls, but you can see it was a bit soft for the border.

Poinsettia is made from fondant and painted with gold luster dust.
