  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons (1 1/4 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature

Creaming Method.

Basic Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 1 8-ounce package cream cheese, room temperature

Cream all ingredients together with an electric mixer, incorporating as much air as possible. You want this frosting to be super light and fluffy!
