Buddy Valastro’s Cream Cheese Frosting
- Two 8-ounce packages cream cheese
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 2 cups powdered (10X) sugar, sifted
Yields: about 3 cups, enough to fill and ice one 9-inch cake
Place cream cheese and butter in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix at medium speed until creamy, approximately 30 seconds.
With the motor running, pour in the vanilla and mix for 30 seconds. Add the sugar, a little at a time, and mix until smooth, approximately 1 minute after the last addition.
Use right away, or refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
