Strawberry Cream Cheese Frosting
Strawberry cream cheese frosting is the perfect partner for strawberry cupcakes. It is really fast to mix up. If you use chopped berries remember to frost the cupcakes with a spatula because the strawberries will clog the pastry tip.

- 1 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1 cup cream cheese, room temperature
- 1 1/2 cups confectioner's sugar
- 1 tablespoon meringue powder
- 1/4 cup pureed strawberries (or finely chopped)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- dash salt
Beat the butter until cream. Add the cream cheese and cream until smooth. Add the confectioner's sugar, meringue powder, strawberries, salt and vanilla and beat on medium high speed for 3-5 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl frequently.
This makes enough for a 6 inch layer cake, the top of a 9x13 sheet or 12 cupcakes. To frost an 8" or 9" layer cake, double the recipe
