Frostings

I have so many fabulous frosting recipes on this site! Some frostings are perfected classics like my vanilla buttercream frosting and my chocolate cream cheese frosting, while others are way more creative (like cookie dough frosting and strawberry whipped cream).

While all of my frostings are in this category, I recommend you look at my comprehensive post on frosting recipes to get more detailed information about frostings, explore the different types of buttercream frostings, meringue-based frostings, whipped cream frostings, and to learn about the differences between frostings and icings.

All of the frostings you see here work equally well as cupcake frostings or cake frostings.
