- 1 lb softened cream cheese
- 4 cups icing sugar
- 1 cup softened butter
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
In a standing mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, or with a hand-held mixer in a large bowl, mix the cream cheese and butter until mixed and smooth. Add vanilla extract. Add icing sugar gradually until desired consistency.
Please note this is enough icing to layer a 3 layer cake, you could easily halve this if icing cupcakes.
