  • The key to this frosting is beating the butter for five full minutes.
  • Once the butter is whipped, add the cream cheese.
  • Add the vanilla paste. If I want a serious vanilla taste, I'll add more vanilla paste.
  • Add salt.
  • Add heavy cream, if needed. If you are going to pipe scoop out with large spoon, hold sideways over bowl. Frosting should plop back into bowl in about a second or two. If it doesn't you will need to add a little heavy cream.
  • Refrigerate or freeze until ready to use. If you take out from refrigerator, give it a chance to come down to room temperature.
