5 Ingredient Frosting!

Magic Ingredients:
-8 oz cream cheese
-1 cup of unsalted butter at room temperature
-1 cup powdered sugar
-flavoring extract of your choosing (I used coconut this time!)
-food coloring of your choosing (teal was the color for me)

1: In a standard mixer blend sugar and butter until fluffy.

2: Blend in cream cheese, flavoring, and food coloring until combined:
