Note, these instructions are written assuming the standard serving size, since you have modified the number of servings, these steps may need to be modified for best results
- 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.
- Place the butter, cream cheese, and vanilla extract into a large mixing bowl, or a standing mixer, and beat until fluffy.
- Slowly add in the powdered sugar, and beat after each addition until fully combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
- Once all of the sugar is added to the frosting, beat the mixture for 3-5 minutes or until it's whipped and creamy.
- 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.
