Almond Cream Cheese Frosting is a delicious creamy lightly whipped frosting for all types of cakes. Stays firm at room temperature!
This recipe for almond cream cheese frosting is so good. With just the right amount of almond and vanilla extract, it’s the absolute best frosting to spread on almost any type of cake. It is amazing on my Ultimate Moist Chocolate Cake Recipe and just delightful on my Simple Yellow Cake. In fact, my yellow cake with this vanilla almond buttercream is my most requested combination.
American ButtercreaM Frosting
I love American buttercream because it’s so easy to make. I’ve tried Swiss buttercream and while it is so very delicious, it’s a little more involved. This recipe requires nothing more that six ingredients and a little elbow grease. I especially love this American buttercream for the versatility in flavor. Adding the almond extract takes plain vanilla to a specialty frosting with zero work.
