Simple Cream Cheese Frosting

Strawberry cake with cream cheese frosting has been mine and my sibling’s traditional birthday cake for as long as I can remember. I now make it for my girls, and they love it as well! While I love me some interesting cake and frosting combos, this simple cream cheese frosting will always be my favorite. Trust me on the pinch of salt, it balances all the sweet perfectly!
