Cream Cheese Frosting Instructions

  • Beat together butter and cheese with mixer.  Add vanilla extract and powdered sugar and continue mixing until frosting is smooth and of spreading consistency.


You could use store bought frosting and do the top or you can frost the whole cake with the recipe below. I had some leftover frosting from a previous cake which is why I only frosted the top.
