In my attempt to move further and further away from using refined foods, I made a mouth watering cream cheese frosting for my daughter’s birthday cake.
Cream cheese frosting is so easy to make and has an amazing, unique flavor! I got so many requests for the recipe that I thought I’d share it here for everyone.
They Loved It!

Lillian’s birthday party guests could not got enough of it. These young ladies asked for seconds and even asked for the recipe to take home! One sweet girl said she never eats the frosting on cake and that she LOVED this frosting. I agree with her, I don’t care for most frostings as they are too sweet and I can taste that horrid dye!
1/3 cup butter (If I have it on hand, I use Purity Farm Organic Ghee, Clarified Butter, 13-Ounce and if not, I use Kerrygold Pure Irish Butter – Unsalted (8 ounce))
3/4 cup coconut palm sugar (I use Big Tree Farms Organic Coconut Sugar, Blonde, 16-Ounce Pouches (Pack of 6)) (Update 1.17.16: I play around with the amount of coconut sugar. I measure 3/4 of a cup and then slowly add it in until it’s at a desired sweetness. It’s always different!)
1 cup cream cheese
1/2 tsp. vanilla (I use Simply Organic Pure Vanilla Extract — 4 fl oz)
Cream butter and sugar. Add cream cheese and vanilla and mix until smooth.
Since coconut sugar is being used instead of fine powdered sugar, let the frosting rest for about 10 minutes several times. Keep mixing until it’s smooth, silky, and a beautiful medium blonde color.
I made this frosting to top our almond cookies too. Oh my goodness! YUM! Try it on all your favorite cookies and cakes.
*I cheated for the actual cake. I used a gluten free cake mix; which I didn’t like as much as others I’ve tasted. When I find one I like or find a recipe I like I’ll post it on the blog.
Happy 13th Birthday Beautiful Lillian!
