I love red velvet cake ever since I discovered its existence. And I've been searching for a recipe for cream cheese frosting to go with this red velvet cake. I like it cheesy and not too sweet. I've been experimenting with various recipes and version of cream cheese frosting. And most of the recipes would be too sweet for my taste.
And, I found this cream cheese frosting recipes. The texture is soft and fluffy (somewhat like meringue butter cream, I think). It's not overly sweet. And, I could eat this frosting straight from spoon. It goes really well with carrot cakes too!
