Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting

"I don’t like to play favorites with my recipes. I enjoy almost all of the cakes and frostings that I make. However, I will openly admit that my favorite frosting is chocolate cream cheese frosting.

Cupcake Project began in 2007 as Stefani Pollack's journey to master the cupcake (for the full back story, see her post about the nine month adventure preparing to bake cupcakes for her friends’ wedding). As the home to over 200 cupcake recipes, Cupcake Project has become an encyclopedia of what the cupcake can become. Stef’s cupcakes range from basic and brilliant (like the Ultimate Vanilla Cupcake) to downright bizarre (Cupcakewurst).
