Servings: 24 cupcakes


  • 16 oz Cream Cheese at room temperature
  • 4 oz Butter at room temperature
  • 1 Lemon juiced
  • 2 tsp Ginger Paste
  • 2 cups Powdered Sugar


  • Make your favorite carrot or spice cake recipe. If you don't have one, you can use a box mix, that's what I did. 
  • Using a mixer, mix the cream cheese and butter together until combined and fluffy. 
  • Add in the remainder of the ingredients and mix. Use a slow speed until the powdered sugar is incorporated then turn it up to medium. Continue mixing until it's smooth. 
  • Taste - add in more lemon or ginger if needed. 
  • Once the cake or cupcakes have cooled, decorate with the lemon-ginger cream cheese frosting. Pipe it or spread it on with a knife. Have fun with it!
