AMARULA CREAM CHEESE FROSTING
250 g cream cheese (1 brick)
115 g / ¼ lb (4 oz) / 1 stick softened butter
1-2 teaspoons Amarula liqueur
1½ cups icing sugar / confectioners/powdered sugar
Beat cream cheese, butter and Amarula liqueur with electric beaters until light and fluffy and well-blended. Slowly add ½ cup of icing sugar at a time, and beat until smooth and creamy. Check for consistency. If you prefer it thicker, feel free to add another ½ cup of icing sugar.
I prefer to not add it, as I am not keen on the extra sweetness. Liberally coat your cooled carrot cake with this moreish Amarula cream cheese frosting. Decorate and sprinkle a copious amount of chopped walnuts and add some maraschino cherries as well.
