Welcome to the delightful world of Thermomix cream cheese icing!

This creamy, tangy topping is a favorite for cakes, cupcakes, and more. With your Thermomix, preparing this icing is not only easy but also highly efficient.

Cream cheese icing is a smooth, soft frosting made primarily from cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. It’s known for its rich texture and slightly tangy flavor, which pairs beautifully with a variety of desserts. While the classic recipe is beloved by many, there are several delicious variations to consider:

  • Chocolate Cream Cheese Icing: Add cocoa powder for a decadent chocolate twist.
  • Strawberry Cream Cheese Icing: Blend in pureed strawberries for a fruity touch.
  • Lemon Cream Cheese Icing: Incorporate lemon zest and a bit of lemon juice for a refreshing zing.

Creating the perfect fluffy cream cheese icing with your Thermomix involves a few simple tips:

  1. Room Temperature Ingredients: Ensure your cream cheese and butter are at room temperature before mixing. This prevents lumps and ensures a smooth texture.
  2. Gradual Mixing: Gradually add powdered sugar to the mix, allowing it to fully incorporate with the cream cheese and butter. Use your Thermomix’s slow mixing setting to prevent splashing.
  3. Don’t Overbeat: Beat the icing just until it’s fluffy and creamy, but be cautious not to overbeat as it can become too runny.
  4. Chill Before Using: If your icing is too soft, chill it in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. This helps it firm up, making it easier to spread or pipe.

The versatility of your Thermomix allows for creating numerous other delicious frostings and icings. Here are a few ideas:

Arming yourself with these recipes, tips, and your trusty Thermomix, you’re set to impress with your baking skills. The joy of making cream cheese icing is just the beginning of your culinary adventures with frostings and icings!

Recipe Notes

For the colored version, just add some food coloring (powder or liquid) after letting it rest in the refrigerator and then garnish the cupcakes. If you only have spreadable cheese in a bowl (other than Philadelphia), drain it and dry it with a dry cloth, reduce it to “small pieces” and let it harden 5-10 minutes in the freezer.

*For those who are intolerant to dairy products, use lactose-free butter and spreadable cheese.
