Chocolate Cupcakes With Cheesecake Frosting Recipe

After looking at the ingredients lists on some of the boxed mixes, I tend to make homemade cupcakes more. I can’t even pronounce some of those ingredients listed, which is not good. So I keep it simple and make my own.

Making your own frosting is not hard either especially if you make it with cream cheese. So good and creamy!

How to Pipe Cream Cheese Mixture onto Cupcakes

If you don’t have a piping bag you can make your own. Spoon the cream cheese mixture into a resealable Ziploc bag and press out any excess air before sealing.

Then cut a small piece from the bottom corner of bag. That allows you to pipe the cream cheese mixture onto cupcakes.

Storing Cream Cheese Desserts

Any desserts made with cream cheese should be covered and stored in the refrigerator and eaten or discarded within 4 to 5 days.
