Question by sunspotflares: Does anyone have a good white frosting recipe for cupcakes?
I’m making cupcakes for a friend to take to a halloween party. She wants them to be iced with orange icing so she can decorate them like pumpkins.

Does anyone have a good recipe for a white frosting (that I can dye orange) for these cupcakes? The only ones I have are buttercreams, and I’m not fond of buttercream.

Best answer:

Answer by chris w
CREAM CHEESE FROSTING

1/2 c. butter
1 small package cream cheese
1 tsp. vanilla
1 lb. confectioners sugar

Combine butter, cream cheese, and vanilla. Beat until smooth.
Gradually add the sugar, while beating well.

If mixture is too thick to spread, thin to a spreadable consistency by adding a small amount of milk.

    Browned Butter Frosting

    Start to Finish: 20 minutes

    Ingredients
    3/4 cup butter
    6 cups powdered sugar
    4 to 5 tablespoons milk
    2 teaspoons vanilla

    Directions
    1. In a small saucepan heat butter over low heat until melted. Continue heating until butter turns a delicate brown. Remove from heat. In a large mixing bowl combine powdered sugar, 4 tablespoons of the milk, and the vanilla. Add browned butter. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until combined. Beat on medium to high speed, adding additional milk, if necessary, to reach spreading consistency. This frosts the tops and sides of two 8- or 9-inch cake layers.

    Coconut Butter Frosting

    In a very large bowl, beat 2/3 cup butter, softened, with an electric mixer on medium to high speed about 1 minute or until smooth and fluffy. Gradually add 2 cups powdered sugar and 1/4 teaspoon salt, beating well. Slowly beat in 1/3 cup purchased unsweetened coconut milk. Gradually beat in 5 cups powdered sugar. Beat in enough additional purchased unsweetened coconut milk to reach spreading consistency.

    Meringue Frosting
    Start to Finish: 25 minutes

    Ingredients
    1-1/2 cups granulated sugar
    1/3 cup cold water
    2 egg whites
    1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
    1 teaspoon vanilla

    Directions
    1. In a 2-quart top of a double boiler combine sugar, water, egg whites, and cream of tartar. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds.

    2. Place the pan over boiling water (upper pan should not touch the water). Cook, beating constantly with the electric mixer on high speed, for 10 to 13 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer registers 160 degrees F when inserted in the mixture, stopping beater and quickly scraping bottom and sides of pan every 5 minutes to prevent sticking. Remove pan from the heat; add vanilla. Beat about 1 minute more or until frosting is fluffy and holds soft peaks. This frosts tops and sides of two 8- or 9-inch cake layers or one 10-inch tube cake. Store frosted cake in the refrigerator and serve the same day it is made.

    3. Makes about 5 cups
