  • Thermomix


  • 360 g icing sugar
  • 250 g cream cheese room temperature
  • 115 g butter room temperature
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt optional


  • Weigh the icing sugar into the Thermomix bowl. Sift by pressing Turbo for 5-10 seconds.
  • Add all of the remaining ingredients to a clean Thermomix bowl and mix for 15 seconds, Speed 5 or until smooth.
  • Scrape down the sides and mix for a further 15 seconds on Speed 5.


Ingredients Info:
  • cream cheese - choose a block of full fat cream cheese (not light, skim or spreadable).
  • butter - either salted or unsalted is fine.
  • icing sugar - choose pure icing sugar for a firmer frosting or icing sugar mixture for a softer frosting.
 More Recipe Tips:
  • For a smooth result, ensure that your cream cheese and butter are at room temperature before using.
  • If your frosting is too runny, add extra icing sugar and mix again. If the frosting is too thick, add a tiny splash of milk and mix again.
  • Keep the frosting stored in the fridge and consume within 3 days.
  • For a lemony twist, add the grated zest and juice from 1 lemon (optional) and omit the vanilla extract. You may find that you need to add extra sugar when using lemon juice as it makes the frosting softer. 
  • Adding a pinch of salt to your frosting will counterbalance the sweetness of the icing sugar.
