Top Rated Cream Cheese Frosting Recipes

PS frosting
This simple cream cheese frosting is seasoned with the official taste of fall: pumpkin spice. Just to be clear there is no actual pumpkin in this frosting, just generous amounts of cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger. Note that higher quality butter will yield even tastier frosting. Use butter with a high-fat content such as Plugra.

red velvet cake
The Waldorf Astoria New York invented Red Velvet Cake (it was first created in its kitchen in the first half of the 20th century), so this is truly an original recipe!Red Velvet Cake is a decadent chocolate cake dyed a deep red then iced in a rich cream cheese and Mascarpone frosting. This treat uses beets as a colorant, preventing the cake from having the harsh, artificial taste that red food dyes often produce.Although many consider the Red Velvet Cake to be a Southern classic, it was actually created at The Waldorf Astoria New York. The recipe was kept secret until the chef received a letter from a guest asking how to make it.  In response, the chef sent the secret recipe along with a bill for $350. Feeling offended by the invoice, the guest shared the recipe with all of her friends and family members, which ultimately helped the cake grow in popularity and become one of the most sought-after bakery treats.

Pumpkin cupcake
When the leaves are falling and the air is crisp, these frosted cupcakes will warm the kitchen with the fragrance of fall. The comforting flavor of spiced pumpkin in a soft and tender cake is layered with a luscious cream cheese frosting sweetened with real maple syrup. Be sure to use the darkest, most flavorful maple syrup you can find — look for Grade C, which is not an indication of quality but of darkness and intensity of flavor. School party? Top each cream cheese frosted cake with a little candy pumpkin.

Pumpkin Cupcakes
While for many people, the coming of autumn means fall foliage, comfy sweaters, and hot apple cider, to me the changing of the season means one thing: it's pumpkin time! Pumpkin is one of my favorite flavors, and when the weather cools, it's time to incorporate it into as many dishes as possible. These cupcakes are a tasty way to welcome the chilly temperatures. The cake is moist and not too sweet and the decadent maple cream cheese frosting is homey and delicious. And that little crumble of Heath bar on top just takes them over the edge. Whip up these cupcakes for a taste of fall's best flavors all in one bite. Click here to see Cupcakes Galore.

Culinary Content Network blogger Desserts Required writes, "For my Pumpkin Cake with Caramel Cream Cheese Frosting, all one has to do is think of how wonderful a carrot cake is and realize how much more appropriate pumpkin cake is for the Thanksgiving holiday. The caramel is brought into the frosting because it works so beautifully with pumpkin. The toasted pecans on the outside add a fabulous 'pop' to the cake."
