Cream Cheese Frosting

This is an absolute MUST on Carrot Cake, but also try it on Black Magic Cake or any kind of spice cake. Delish!

2 8oz pkgs cream cheese
2 sticks butter
2 cups (1 lb) 10x powdered sugar
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

Combine cream cheese and butter until creamy and smooth.
Add sugar and vanilla. Mix until well combined.

Variations:
When I'm making an Orange Creamsicle Cake, I just add some grated orange zest or orange extract to the recipe, but for a Moe's Lemon Cake, I use the recipe for Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting.

Tip:
Since everyone loves cream cheese frosting so much, I always increase the recipe by half and just pile it on!
