Recipe: My Most Favorite Frosting

So my absolute favorite frosting in the entire world is cream cheese frosting.  Oh my gosh it's just so delicious, especially on red velvet cupcakes.  I'm seriously just hungry thinking about all that yumminess!  I got an amazing cream cheese frosting recipe off of a box of WillIams-Sonoma Gluten Free Red Velvet Cupcakes.

1 cup cream cheese, room temperature
8 tbsp. butter, room temperature
1 3/4 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Combine using a mixer with paddle attachment.
-Beat cream cheese on medium until smooth & fluffy, about 3 minutes.
-Add the butter, & beat again on medium for 3 minutes.
-Add the powdered sugar, beat until smooth & no lumps of sugar are visible.
-Add vanilla, beat until combined.
Makes about 2 1/2 cups frosting.

This frosting is so good I can just eat it straight, which is something I never do.  I highly recommend making this!  It will add a little something to any of your holiday baking!

What's your favorite kind of frosting?
