    Prepare the frosting by beating the butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. There should be no clumps.Beat the powdered sugar in, 1 cup at a time. Repeat until all the powdered sugar is mixed in. Add the lemon zest, lemon juice, and vanilla. Beat again for another minute until the frosting is light and fluffy but still holds its shape.
