  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar


  1. With an electric mixer, beat cream cheese and confectioners' sugar until light and fluffy. (To make without a mixer, sift sugar before stirring into cream cheese.)

    I do double the amount of cream cheese to cut the sugar. Need the quantity to frost 24 cupcakes
