Brown Sugar Cream Cheese Frosting

This is an alternative to the classic recipe that calls for Powdered Sugar. My Husband and I use it to frost Fruit Cocktail Cake. Try it on Applesauce, Spice, Banana or Carrot Cake, too.

Brown Sugar Cream Cheese Frosting


  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 tablespoon honey


1 Melt butter and allow to cool.

2 In a large bowl, combine cream cheese, butter, brown sugar, vanilla and almond extract. Beat with an electric mixer. When mixture starts to stiffen, stop mixer and add honey.

3 Continue to beat until light and fluffy. Do not over mix, or it will collapse.

4 Spread immediately and store cake in refrigerator.
