Cream Cheese Frosting
1 whole 8 oz. pkg. reg. cream cheese, softened
1 and 3/4 boxes 10X confectioner's sugar (powdered sugar)
small amount of milk
1 teaspoon each vanilla and almond extracts
Beat sugar into softened cheese, adding a little milk (1 teaspoon at a time) until just shy of desired consistency. Beat in extracts and more milk (if needed) for spreading.
My mother requested an orange and strawberry cake for her 80th birthday. I substitued the grated peel of a navel orange for the almond flavoring (but left in the vanilla). It tasted like a Dreamcicle (orange/vanilla popcicle). It made me happy to make my mother happy!
