My Top Ten Frostings

These are some of the very best cupcake frostings out there!
Top Ten Frostings You'll Love

Before I started Cupcake Project, I would have told you that I didn’t like frosting. I’ve now learned that what I don’t like is super sugary sweet, artificially-colored, Crisco-based grocery store birthday cake frosting.

The frostings on this list are all frostings that I can eat by the spoonful, and with the exception of number 7, they are all really easy to make. Enjoy!

1. Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting

Chocolate Cream Cheese FrostingThis is the frosting that I would request every year for my birthday cake as a kid. Once you’ve tried it, you’ll see why.

2. Vanilla Bean Buttercream Frosting

3. Brown Sugar Frosting

4. Cookie Dough Frosting

5. Dulce De Leche

6. Red Wine Chocolate Ganache

7. Caramel Icing

Caramel IcingRich luscious caramel takes time and tender loving care to make. This is not a recipe to make every day, but try it out for a very special treat.

8. Balsamic Whipped Cream

Balsamic whipped cream puts Cool Whip to shame. This is my favorite whipped cream frosting, hands down. Make extra to dip strawberries into.

9. Strawberry Whipped Cream

10. Oreo Cookies and Cream Frosting
