Cream Cheese Frosting

I like this cream cheese frosting recipe because it retains the tangy cream cheese taste that is so essential to me when it comes to frosting red velvet cakes. Its really easy and really delicious on any cake though!

16 oz. cream cheese (2 packages), softened
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
A pinch of salt

  1. With an electric mixer, blend cream cheese and butter until smooth.

  2. On low speed, add powdered sugar, salt, and vanilla extract.

  3. Turn mixer on high and beat until light and fluffy.

  4. Use immediately.
