1/2 cup softened butter
1 8 oz package cream cheese
3.5 - 4 cups sugar depending on your preference
1 tsp vanilla

Mix butter and cream cheese, add vanilla and sugar. That's it. Simple and tasty, and it crusts.

Decorator's Cream Cheese Frosting

Serves/Yields: approx. 4 1/2 cups
Prep. Time: 5 min
Cook Time: 15-20 min
Category: Frostings
Difficulty: Easy

I have been blessed to have this incredible cream cheese frosting that forms a nice crust so it is ideal for decorating cakes. It tastes so good that i've been using this recipe more than any other frosting recipe i have.

1/2 cup of shortening
1/2 cup (one stick) unsalted butter @ room temp
1 8oz bar cream cheese @ room temp
1 tblsp white vanilla extract
2 lbs shifted powder sugar
1/2 tsp salt

Cream together shortening, butter, and cream cheese until nice and smooth. Add vanilla into mixture and combine. Sift together sugar and salt, and slowly add to shortening, butter & cheese mixture. Make sure that all sugar is incorporated. Enjoy!

*If to stiff of a consistency use less sugar but all the salt or gradually add milk to make the perfect consistency!
