Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting

One of my favorite frostings...simply delicious!

Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting

1 stick unsalted butter, softened
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup shortening
few grains of salt (optional)
3 to 4 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon imitation butter flavoring
2 teaspoons meringue powder (optional)
2 tablespoons heavy cream or milk, for desired consistency

Mix together butter, cream cheese, shortening, (and salt, if using) until light and fluffy. Add in vanilla extract, butter flavoring, (and meringue powder, if using). Mix well. Add in 1/2 cup of powdered sugar at a time, mixing well after each addition. Once all sugar has been added, mix on medium speed for 5 minutes. Add cream (or milk) 1 tablespoon at a time, if needed for desired consistency.
