Cream Cheese Frosting

Cream Cheese; 400 grams
Butter: 100 grams
Icing sugar: 4 cups
Vanilla essence: 2 tsp

Beat all the ingredients on high for about 2 minutes.

Slice the cake horizontally and on the bottom half, spoon a generous amount of cream cheese and spread. Keep the top half on it (so it is sandwiched) and now apply the rest of the cream cheese generously all over.
I got 2 cakes like this with the quantity mentioned.
