1/2 Cup (1 Stick) Margarine or Butter
1 8oz. Pkg. Cream Cheese
4 Cups Powdered Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 Teaspoon Almond Extract


Let butter and cream cheese stand on counter to warm slightly.  In a medium bowl cream the butter and cream cheese.  Add the powdered sugar, vanilla and almond and mix until light and creamy.  Frost all sides of the cooled cake.  There may be more frosting than needed, depending upon your preferences.  The left over frosting is great on graham crackers, muffins or cupcakes.
