Ingredients

  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese, softened (to room temperature)
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • Chef notes

    I love making this frosting as a base to frost any number of cakes. It's smooth, creamy and works well with a variety of different flavorings, from rich chocolate to sweet strawberry. 

    Technique tip: If you are making two or three cakes at a time, just double or triple the recipe and then divide into bowls so you can switch up the flavor.

    Preparation

    1.

    With a hand mixer, combine butter, cream cheese, vanilla and cream.

    2.

    Add powdered sugar gradually, about 1/3 cup at a time.

    3.

    Mix until smooth and creamy.
