8 Ounces Cream Cheese at Room Temperature
8 Ounces Unsalted Butter at Room Temperature
4 Cups Confectioners Sugar, Sifted
2 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
It is very important that butter and cream cheese are at room temperature. If one is colder than the other, it will lump up.
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy. With the mixer on low, gradually add powdered sugar to cream cheese and butter. Be careful to not over mix. It will become runny if you do. Add vanilla. Beat until combined.
This makes enough to frost a 9” two layer cake.
