Cream Cheese Frosting:
5 Tbl Butter (melted)
1 Block (8 oz.) Cream Cheese
2 Cups Powdered (Confectioner's) Sugar
1. Mix or beat together cream cheese and butter.
2. Mix in shifted powdered sugar
3. Add in food coloring.
See how easy that is? Well. I learned that no matter how easy a recipe looks on paper, I, being the new baker that I am, can still mess it up! I didn't sift the powdered sugar, mostly because, well, I don't have a sifter, so there were small clumps of powdered sugar in the frosting. Good thing I wasn't planning to give the cupcakes away! And the other thing... doesn't the color look a little blegh? I used four drops of blue food coloring but it didn't turn out the way I wanted. I've been reading that I shouldn't use the simple food coloring found in grocery stores (mine are from Wal-Mart) and I should use food coloring made specifically for baking. I'd like to repeat that HJ has banned from buying anything related to baking, so I couldn't buy this specific food coloring. I guess Wal-Mart food coloring will have to do for now! After putting the cupcakes in the refrigerator, they came out yummy anyway. So there.
