This frosting is SUPER easy to put together and definitely makes cupcakes that much tastier. I love these on my chocolate cupcakes, but my favorite combo is to put it on my pumpkin cupcakes!
8 oz cream cheese, at room temperature
6 Tbsp butter, at room temperature
2 1/2 c confectioners’ sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
- In a medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese and butter until smooth.
- Slowly add the confectioners’ sugar, beating on low until it won’t “poof” and then on high to break up any lumps. I usually add about 1/4 to 1/2 c at a time and taste until it’s the sweetness I want for the particular cupcake I’m making.
- Beat until all lumps are gone.
- Add the vanilla and mix until completely integrated.
