Strawberry cream cheese frosting

I am going to stop searching for recipes for dishes that have 3 ingredients. I mean when there are only 3 ingredients how tough can it be to figure what goes in, in what proportion :) ?

I get all thrown off balance by all the references to gelatin, heavy cream, double cream, single cream (is separated cream next?). So this is keeping it ultra simple.

You need:

  • 3 cups cream cheese
  • 20 medium sized strawberries, mulched. (it is great to keep some of the fruit in pieces to chew down on)
  • 1 cup powdered sugar (if you like the frosting a little sweet, add more sugar)
  • Vanilla essence – 1 teaspoon

Whipping up the frosting:

  • Whip the cream cheese in a bowl until it is soft. Use a chilled bowl, preferably.
  • Add the sugar and whisk again to mix in the sugar and cheese completely.
  • Add the vanilla essence and the strawberry fruit and gently mix until the fruit is blended in really well.

A pretty pink frosting, especially for chocolate cup cakes.

The cup cake recipe is from joyofbaking.com, except that I added half a cup of mini chocolate chips to the cake batter.
