Cream Cheese Raspberry Amaretto Frosting

I'm getting ready for my going away party tomorrow, the grown up Leaving on a Jet Plane event. I'm working on a cake which I will, of course, take pictures of when it's done. This is a simple cream cheese frosting with a twist. I'm using it for my Devil's Food cake (from a box mix). Quick, easy, and so delicious.

Cream Cheese Raspberry Amaretto Frosting Recipe:

  • 2 8 oz. packages of cream cheese, softened
  • 1 stick of butter, softened
  • 1 lb. of confectioner's sugar (powdered sugar)
  • 1 tablespoon of almond extract
  • 3 - 4 tablespoons of Amaretto liqueur
  • 2 tablespoons of seedless raspberry jam
  • 2 - 3 tablespoons of milk, if necessary to thin the frosting

  1. In a large bowl, use a blender on medium speed to blend the butter and cream cheese.
  2. Add the almond extract and Amaretto liqueur. Blend until smooth.
  3. Add the raspberry jam. Blend until smooth.
  4. Add half of the sugar. Blend until fully incorporated.
  5. Taste. (This is important!) Decide if you want it sweeter. Add sugar to taste and blend until smooth. Use a little milk to thin the frosting if you want it thinner.
  6. Spread on your favorite cake and enjoy!
