Cream Cheese Filling
Best Cream Cheese Buttercream Recipe

I usually cover my cakes with the Crusting Cream Cheese buttercream recipe. For the filling, I rather use this recipe as the cream cheese flavor is stronger. If you want it stiffer just add more sugar until you find the consistency you want.




  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter

  • 16 oz. cream cheese, softened

  • 2 lb. (8 cups) confectioners' sugar

  • 2 tablespoon milk


*NOTE: Do not use light cream cheese or butter substitute. 
             If margarine is used, icing will be softer.


In a medium mixer bowl cream butter and cream cheese together until smooth. Add sugar and milk. Beat on high until smooth (only 30 seconds to 1 minute). Thin to ice cake smooth; use full strength for piping borders.

YIELD: Makes 5-1/2 cups.
