Do you know how to make Amarula Cream Cheese Icing?

A week or so ago I was asked for an Amarula Cream Cheese Frosting recipe. Since then it’s been hounding me so as we are visiting friends tonight, I decided that this is the opportunity and made a carrot cake with Amarula Cream Cheese Frosting! As in my nature, I took another recipe and made my own adjustments, so this is my recreated version below:

Ingredients:

  1. 250 g cream cheese (1 brick)
  2. 1/4 lb (4 oz) / 115 g 1 stick softened butter
  3. 1-2 tsp Amarula Liqueur
  4. 1½ cups icing sugar (confectioners/powdered sugar)

 

Ingredients to prepare Amarula Cream Cheese Frosting

How to make your Amarula Cream Cheese Icing:

  • Beat cream cheese, butter and Amarula Liqueur with electric beaters until light and fluffy and well-blended.
  • Slowly add ½ cup of icing sugar at a time, and beat until smooth and creamy.
  • Check for consistency and taste. If you prefer it sweeter, feel free to add another ½ cup of icing sugar.
  • Although, I prefer to not add it, as I am not keen on the extra sweetness.
  • Liberally coat your cooled carrot cake with this moreish Amarula Cream cheese Icing.
  • Decorate and sprinkle a copious amount of chopped walnuts and add some maraschino cherries as well.

Now all that remains to be done, would be to make yourself a steaming cup of coffee (or tea if you rather prefer tea) and bite into this most amazing Amarula Cream cheese Icing.
