Homemade frosting is SO much better than store bought, and once you realize how easy it is to whip up this perfect homemade cream cheese buttercream frosting, I’m pretty sure you will never go back to the canned stuff ever again!  This recipe makes enough to frost a good-sized cake or 3-4 dozen cupcakes, so feel free to cut it in half if you don’t need quite as much.

Here is what you need:

1/2 pound (2 sticks) butter, softened 
1 1/2 pounds (3 8oz packages) cream cheese
6 cups powdered sugar (about a pound and a half)

Use your mixer to beat the butter and cream cheese together.

Step 1: Whip together butter & cream cheese on medium high speed until well blended and fluffy, approximately 1-2 minutes.

Whip the butter and cream cheese up until it's fluffy.

Step 2: Reduce speed to low and slowly blend in powdered sugar.  Once sugar is blended in, increase speed to medium and beat well for another 1-2 minutes until smooth. That’s it!  (Really!)
