- 2 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, softened
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar, sifted
Beat cream cheese, butter, and vanilla with electric mixer at medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Reduce speed to medium and gradually add powdered sugar, beating well until frosting is smooth. This frosts tops and sides of two 8- or 9-inch layers. (Halve the recipe to frost a 13x9x2-inch cake.) Cover and store frosted cake in the refrigerator.
