Makes 16 servings

    • 1 (8-ounce) package reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
    • 3 tablespoons butter

    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Terrific Tidbit:
For another fantastic dessert option, turn this cake into a trifle by layering cake, cream cheese icing, and nonfat whipped topping in a trifle or glass bowl.  One time, the layers fell apart and I turned it into a trifle and now I make the cake both ways and can't decide which is the most popular!
