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
5 cups 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.

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.

Some recipes use as much as 6 cups of powdered sugar, but I always find that to be too sweet, so I cut it down to 5 cups. I've even gone as low as 4 cups. I wouldn't go any lower because then you run the risk of it being too soft.
