Magnolia Bakery-Cream Cheese Frosting

Another amazing frosting recipe from Magnolia!  I swear by these recipes, this is my go-to book for icing when I bake!!

1 pound (two 8-ounce packages) cream cheese, softened and cut into small pieces
6 tbsp. unsalted butter, softened and cut into small pieces
1 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
5 cups sifted confectioners' sugar

In a large bowl, on the medium speed of an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and butter until smooth, about 3 minutes.  Add the vanilla and beat well.  Gradually add the sugar, 1 cup at a time, beating continuously until smooth and creamy.  Cover and refrigerate icing for 2-3 hours, but no longer, to thicken before using.

Makes enough for one 2-or 3-layer 9-inch cake

Enjoy! xoxo Julie
