  • Using electric beaters, beat cream cheese for 1 minute, until lighter in texture.
  • Add sweetener and cocoa-butter mixture. Beat 1 minute until fluffy.

  • Use now to frost your cake! Or refrigerate until ready to use; then bring to room temperature. Once your cake is frosted, you can serve it room temperature, but I like it best refrigerated for 1 to 3 hours, or overnight.
