Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Filling and Frosting
I use a cream cheese frosting recipe using 12ouces of cream cheese, 13 tablespoons (3/4cup+1 tablespoon) of butter, a tablespoon of vanilla, tablespoon of milk (blend those together) and MAYBE 3 1/2 cups of powdered sugar (blended in 1/2 cup at a time). I can't imagine how thick it would be using 9 cups. Not to mention that much sugar is just going to mask the cream cheese flavor. The recipe I listed is the most amazing cream cheese frosting I have ever had. I never buy the Ready To Serve frostings anymore. If you need enough frosting to use as the filling you could use the 9 cups of sugar but I would double the rest of the ingredients if you want to be able to taste more than just the sugar.
