Red Velvet Cream Cheese Buttercream Ingredients:
¾ cups cream cheese, room temperature
½ cup salted butter, room temperature
½ cup vegetable shortening
3 ½ cups icing sugar
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon cocoa powder

Red Velvet Cream Cheese Buttercream:
- In a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, whip the cream cheese on high speed for 3 to 5 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl every minute, until smooth. Add the butter and shortening and mix on high speed for 2 to 3 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl every minute, until smooth.
- Sift the cocoa powder and icing sugar together, and mix to combine.
- With the mixer on low speed, slowly add the icing sugar and cocoa powder and mix for an additional 30 seconds. Increase the speed to high and mix for 3 minutes, until the mixture looks light and fluffy. Scrape down the bowl. Add the vanilla bean paste, Liquid Red Velvet, and red food colouring, and mix for an additional minute.
- Use immediately or store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week. Remove from the fridge 1 hour before using and rewhip for 30 seconds before using.
