Decorating Cream Cheese Frosting


This is a great cream cheese frosting to make if you plan to use it for decorating purposes- it’s stiff enough to pipe with and you can add milk, as needed, to make it creamier.

Decorating Cream Cheese Frosting


  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup Crisco shortening
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 6 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 3 tbs milk (or more as needed)


Beat cream cheese, butter, and shortening until creamy.  Blend in vanilla extract. Alternate adding the sugar and milk until you have your desired consistency.
