I use this on cakes of all kinds. It's very simple and you can use it plain or I use Jello Gelatin powder to flavor it and color it! This always turns out great! I use it on jello poke cakes a lot and it's a great addition!

  • 1Make sure that the butter and cream cheese are room temperature. If they aren't, the frosting will not be creamy.
  • 2In an electric mixer, using the whisk attachment, combine cream cheese and butter. Scrape the sides as needed. Add vanilla and milk and slowly incorporate until smooth.
  • 3Add powdered sugar by the tablespoon while the mixer is on a low speed. Once all the powdered sugar is incorporated, whip for at least 1 minutes. Scrape bowl of mixer as needed. Optional: Add the jello powder at this time, first starting on low speed and increasing speed to incorporate.
  • 4Spread on cake and refrigerate for a few hours to let the butter and cream cheese set up fully.
