Delicious buttercream frosting recipe
  • 1½ cups unsalted butter, cubed and chilled
  • 4oz cream cheese, cubed
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  1. Add butter to your stand mixer and beat with paddle attachment until light and fluffy.
  2. Add cream cheese and mix until well incorporated.
  3. Add confectioner's sugar ½ cup at a time- scraping the bowl down after each addition with a spatula.
  4. Once you hit 2 cups of confectioner's sugar you might start tasting the frosting to see if you need more sugar. I usually like about 2½ cups to 3 cups of sugar.
  5. Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla and mix.
  6. Done!
