In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make Cream Cheese Frosting for Happy Mother’s Day Hummingbird Cake. This is a standard amount of frosting for a three-layer cake; you may make 1 ½ times the recipe or a double-recipe of frosting, if you like it particularly thick between the layers and on top. Ingredients: 8-oz. package cream cheese, softened ½ cup butter (1 stick), softened 16-oz. package confectioner’s sugar (powdered sugar, also called icing sugar) 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Combine 8-oz. softened cream cheese with ½ cup softened butter, beating with an electric mixer until smooth. Add a 16-oz. package of confectioner’s sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla, and beat until light and fluffy. Spread between layers, around sides, and over top of a three-layer cake. This frosting can be used for Hummingbird Cake, Red Velvet Cake, Carrot Cake, and others. It is always great on cupcakes, too. I hope you enjoy this Cream Cheese Frosting for the Happy Mother’s Day Hummingbird Cake! –Betty ?
Egg whites will beat faster and higher if you add a pinch of salt.
Add about 7 drops of lemon juice to 2 cups of whipping cream. It will make the cream beat up firm in about half the time.
To really make scrambled eggs or omelets rich add a couple of
spoonfuls of sour cream, cream cheese, or heavy cream in and then
beat them up.
