Annecy turned one yesterday. When Xavier turned one, I brought in Day of the Dead decorations from a work trip to Mexico, invited 30 people over, mixed up fresh margaritas, made 3 types of tacos and hunted down black food coloring to make a skull on his cake. I think I even bought him a gift...and wrapped it. Flash forward to second child. Annecy got cupcakes after school in the park with a side of cheddar bunnies and apple sauce. Anyways, I felt that the least I could do was make her first experience with pure sugar worth it!
I'm a 'ditch the frosting, eat the cake' kind of girl so when I say this frosting is amazing, I really mean it. I could eat it with a spoon. (I'm not sure why I used the theoretical there since I did eat it with a spoon!)
Cream together 8 oz of cream cheese and 1/4 cup butter, softened. Slowly add 2 cups of powdered sugar. Then add 1/2 cup smashed and drained strawberries. Try to get as much liquid as possible out of the berries and then chill to make it firm up.
Make this frosting this summer!
