Yes, you can make cream cheese frosting without butter. This delicate whipped cream cheese frosting has a nice tangy flavor and just enough sweetness to complement any cupcake or cake without overwhelming it. We even use it to top our Zucchini and Pine Nut Muffins.

Make-ahead note: The frosting will last up to 1 week when stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
