Raspberry Cream Cheese Buttercream Frosting/Filling

This Raspberry Cream Cheese Buttercream is delicious on its own but you could mix in some fresh raspberries as well, place them on top of the filling between the cake layers, or just arrange them on top to decorate your cake.                            

Ingredients for filling and frosting a 9 inch cake:

  • 1.5 cups (375 g) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 5 cups powdered sugar
  • 18 oz (500 g) cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup (100 g) seedless raspberry jam
  • 2 Tbsp lukewarm water
  • Red food colouring paste  – I use Wilton (optional)
  • 1.5 cup fresh raspberries (optional)
