Cream cheese frosting is a variation on a buttercream frosting recipe. Buttercream frosting is traditionally made with powdered sugar, butter, and vanilla extract or another flavoring. In a cream cheese frosting, the texture of buttercream is lightened with the addition of cream cheese as the main ingredient. Cream cheese frosting recipes became popular in the 1960s, with the increasing availability of packaged cream cheese in supermarkets. The frosting is a traditional frosting choice for red velvet cakes, carrot cakes, and spice cakes, and is also a popular choice for cupcakes.
