  • 224 grams Philadelphia Cream Cheese at room temperature.
  • 110 grams butter at room temperature
  • 1 teas. vanilla essence best quality
  • 445 grams powdered sugar sifted 2 times.


  • Using a hand held mixer beat the cream cheese, vanilla, and butter in a bowl until well blended.
  • Add the powdered sugar gradually, beating until well blended after each addition.
  • Chill until it becomes easy to work with for frosting your cake.


I use a handheld mixer for this recipe, it makes it really quick to put together. I normally sift the powdered sugar twice before using it to be sure that all the lumps are removed. If you are using a handheld mixer that shouldn't be too much of a problem.
You can of course color the frosting with the addition of a drop of vegetable food coloring.
Another suggestion is to add at the end 110 grams of flaked coconut and then finish off with a light dusting of a little more coconut.
You can also go to Kraft Foods (www.kraftfoods.com), they have lots of variations on this recipe.
