Best Ever Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe


  • 2 8- oz blocks cream cheese softened
  • 2 sticks butter softened
  • 2 lbs powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla


  • Place the cream cheese and butter in the bowl of an electric mixer.On medium, blend for about 2 minutes until they cream cheese and butter are thoroughly combined.
  • Add the vanilla and mix again.
  • Add your powdered sugar in batches. This is only so your sugar doesn't explode all over the kitchen (it's no fun to clean up!) Put a third of the powdered sugar bag in the bowl and turn the mixer on on its lowest setting until the sugar incorporates, then add more sugar.
  • Once you have all the sugar in the bowl, turn the mixer on high for about 2 1/2 - 3 minutes. This will whip air into the frosting and make it nice and fluffy!
