This cream cheese frosting was delicious on top of a carrot cake we made recently. With a somewhat thin layer of frosting (which is all we or our guests care for), it worked perfectly for a three-layer 9-inch round cake.
250 grams (8 ounces) cream cheese
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2- 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
Directions and Notes:
In a medium bowl, mix all ingredients until evenly combined.
For a fluffier frosting, beat with an electric mixer. I just put all of my ingredients into a food processor and mixed them together for about a minute. It made a great, creamy frosting.
