This sweet, silky cream cheese frosting is the perfect complement to a moist, stately carrot cake. Whip up a batch of this icing for your layer cake to give some extra depth to your desserts, and it'll only take you about 10 minutes. Be sure to garnish with candied carrot curls!

How to Make It

Beat softened cream cheese, butter, and brown sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Add vanilla, and beat until blended. Gradually add powdered sugar, beating at low speed until blended. Increase speed to high; beat 1 minute or until smooth.
