“This is how my mother has always made cream cheese frosting for red velvet cake and spice cake..it's super simple and inexpensive to make. And it tastes sooo much better than store-bought! You can reduce fat a bit by using a reduced fat cream cheese and margarine, but don't sub the vanilla for imitation - it just isn't the same!”
