Just a few ingredients come together to form a super sweet, smooth, and decadent frosting that pairs with just about any kind of cake. There are a few tips and tricks with the ingredients and mixing needed to make it perfect!
Servings 16 servings
- 8 ounces cream cheese softened
- 8 tablespoons butter softened
- 4 cups confectioners sugar
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Blend butter and cream cheese together on high speed in a stand mixer with the paddle attachment until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Scrape sides, add vanilla, and continue mixing for about another minute or so.
Add sugar incrementally, blending slowly to combine and then on high speed to really mix.
