Cream Cheese Frosting
*a wilton recipe

Makes about 5 1/2 cups of icing

• 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
• 2 packages (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
• 8 cups sifted confectioners' sugar (about 2 lbs.)
• 2 tablespoons milk

In medium mixer bowl, cream butter and cream cheese together until smooth. Add sugar one cup at a time and milk. Mix well. Beat on high until smooth (only 30 seconds to 1 minute). Thin to ice cake smooth; use full strength for piping borders.

I've been thinking real hard and I've decided I want to start a mini little cupcake/dessert catering business over the summer :D. What do you think? Ideas? I'm not sure what it's going to be called yet but I don't know, summers only two months away.. I better get started.

Have you listened to the new Kate Nash CD? AMAZING.

& is that your room in the background? It looks so cute, you should do a tour in photos sometime.

that would be cool! you could bake for parties :D I don't know how much demand there is for it in your area. And I agree that your room looks nice, I like the windows a lot!

adele - baking is much easier than cooking so maybe you can ? it's very structured and really its rather impossible to mess up unless the recipe sucks or you don't follow the instructions :}
and yes it is ! thank you ! maybe i should ..

borderbasher - yes thats exactly what i was thinking ! and for events and such ! yeah i'm not quite sure either but i don't know anyone else around my area that does it so maybe i'd have a good chance ! thank you love <3
