Notes

Krazy Kitchen Mom Tips
  • Use only block-style cream cheese for this recipe.
  • Be sure to let both cream cheese and butter sit out until they are both softened.
  • If your powdered sugar is lumpy, you'll need to sift it through a strainer to ensure that it is loose when you add it to the butter and cream cheese mixture. 
  • To freeze this frosting, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and then put it into a ziptop bag. Freeze it for up to two (2) months. To thaw, place the bag of frozen frosting in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
