Personal Notes:
Use softened cream cheese to avoid lumps in the finished frosting. For our cream cheese frosting, we made sure to use softened butter and cream cheese so there weren’t any lumps. After beating confectioners’ sugar with the softened butter until the mixture was light and fluffy, we added 4 ounces of softened cream cheese and a dash of vanilla extract for just the right amount of tang and complexity.
