Cream Cheese Frosting

This is the frosting I put on the Carrot Cake, Pumpkin Cake, and sometimes on Carrot Zucchini Muffins, but it would also go well with red velvet cake. I would double this for a 4-layer cake or if you really love icing.

Total time: 5 minutes. Covers one 2-layer carrot cake, or one batch of muffins.

Materials: Small mixing bowl; beaters. Missing materials or ingredients? Look here.


  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 3 tbsp butter, softened
  • 3 tbsp apple sauce
  • Dash vanilla
  • ½ cup coconut flakes
  • 1 cup confectioner’s sugar
