Vanilla Cupcakes With Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting (Georgetown Cupcakes Copycat Recipe) - From Val's Kitchen

Whipped cream is my favorite frosting. If I can’t have whipped cream frosting, cream cheese frosting is probably my next favorite, I like it much better than buttercream. Take a tasty cupcake, put some cream cheese frosting and a couple of edible pearls on there and you have a fairly elegant looking cupcake. The kind you’d find at a tea party. These are those.

Those look flat out fantastic! There’s nothing like a good cupcake. And part of a good cupcake is a good frosting job. Those look beautiful!

All I can say is a big hearty yes PLEASE! I personally love cream cheese frosting or buttercream. The stuff that usually comes on cupcakes is WAY too sugary for me and it leaves me feeling a little bit sick. I definitely would love to give this recipe a try one of these days!
