  • Mix together your softened cream cheese and salted butter.
  • Add in the vanilla extract, mixing even more.
  • Finally mix in the powdered sugar, being sure to scrape the sides of the bowl so you get all of that powdered sugar goodness in your frosting.
  • And that's it. It's ready for spreading on cake, cupcakes, cinnamon rolls, or whatever other type of dessert you choose to put it on.
