National Cream Cheese Frosting Day If you love delicious cakes or cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, don’t forget to celebrate National Cream Cheese Frosting Day! Interestingly, different sources state different dates for this amazing holiday: most agree that it is celebrated on December 13, but some claim it falls on March 31. Well, we guess you’ll just have to celebrate it twice a year.

Cream cheese is a soft fresh cheese made from cream and milk. It usually has a mild taste and is similar to mascarpone as far as texture, taste, and methods of production are concerned. Unlike brie and most other soft cheeses, cream cheese is not matured and needs to be consumed fresh.

Cream cheese was invented by American dairyman William A. Lawrence in the 1870s and has since become a common product in many households. It can be consumed as a spread (for example, bagels with cream cheese are a common breakfast and brunch food in the United States) and used in various recipes, including desserts.

Cream cheese frosting is usually made by beating together cream cheese, softened butter, and powdered sugar. Various flavorings can be added to make it more interesting. Vanilla is the most common one, but you also can flavor cream cheese frosting with cocoa, espresso, orange zest and juice, as well as with various spices, syrups, and liqueurs.

Most holiday websites agree that National Cream Cheese Frosting Day was established by Arla, a leader in clean-label cream cheese. However, they don’t agree on the date of the holiday. National Today and a few other websites say it is celebrated on December 13, while Days of the Year claims the date is March 31. (If you ask us, December 13 makes more sense because cream cheese frosting is especially popular during the holiday baking season.) Be that as it may, desserts with cream cheese frosting are so delicious that we definitely see the appeal of celebrating National Cream Cheese Frosting Day twice a year.

The easiest way to celebrate the holiday is to treat yourself to a delicious cupcake or a slice of cake with cream cheese frosting from your favorite cafe or bakery, and if that’s enough for you, it’s totally okay. But wouldn’t it be more fun to learn how to make delicious cream cheese frosting?

Bake a batch of cupcakes, brownies or cinnamon rolls, a carrot cake or red velvet cake. Then mix a bowl of cream cheese frosting and invite your family and friends over to enjoy the delicious combination of baked goods and rich, creamy frosting.

If you’ve never made cream cheese frosting, start with the basic recipe; if it is not your first rodeo, you can experiment with different flavors: chocolate, maple syrup, coconut, coffee, orange, creme de menthe, pumpkin spice, etc. Make sure hat your baked goods are completely cooled before applying frosting because cream cheese frosting has a tendency to melt.

Don’t forget to snap a photo of your mouth watering dessert with cream cheese frosting and post it on social media with the hashtags #NationalCreamCheeseFrostingDay and #CreamCheeseFrostingDay to spread the word about the holiday and encourage your friends to join the celebration.
