This cream cheese frosting recipe is for cream cheese lovers only!!! Its full of tangy cream cheese- buttery flavor, sweetened perfectly with powdered sugar and a generous splash of vanilla! Its my new favorite cream cheese frosting to date. I love how easily it can go from light and whipped to firm (simply by popping it into the fridge) making it great for whatever texture youre aiming for. Feel free to increase the sugar if you need more sweetness and stability. You can even swap the vanilla extract for coconut, orange, mint or whatever else lifts ya skirt!

So if youre looking for a cream cheese frosting that actually tastes like sweetened cream cheese as opposed to a buttercream with a hint of cream cheese then try it out! It just might become your favorite as well!!


Cream cheese 32 Ounce (((room temperature)))
Unsalted butter 16 Tablespoon (((room temperature)))
Vanilla extract 2 Teaspoon
Powdered sugar 4 Cup (64 tbs) , sifted
