  1. Before making this frosting, be sure that you allow your butter and cream cheese to fully soften to room temperature. I prefer to leave the butter out for a few hours, but the cream cheese should be ready within an hour.
  2. Place the butter, cream cheese, and vanilla extract into a large mixing bowl, or a standing mixer, and beat until fluffy.
  3. Slowly add in the powdered sugar, and beat after each addition until fully combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  4. Once all of the sugar is added to the frosting, beat the mixture for 3-5 minutes or until it's whipped and creamy.
  5. Keep the frosting at room temperature until you have used what you need to frost your cakes or cupcakes, and then refrigerate what is left, or freeze for later use.
