Classic Cream Cheese Frosting

This frosting is effortless and taste exactly like it should.  Just like grandma made, no nasty chemical aftertaste!  

The Starting Lineup

  • 1 8oz block of Cream Cheese, softened
  • 3-4 cups of Powdered Sugar
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 2 tsps pure vanilla extract  

In bowl, cream together your softened butter & cream cheese till combined.  You can use your stand mixer or a hand mixer.  However, if you need an arm workout, you can even use a good ol fashioned bowl & spoon! 


Slowly and one cup at a time, add in your powdered sugar and vanilla. 


The longer you whip these 4 ingredients together, the lighter and fluffier they tend to become!  At the end, you’ll have a creamy, messy, sweet and tasty frosting!  Please feel free to lick the beater and your bowl 😉
