"I needed an easy strawberry frosting to frost my daughter's birthday cake. I used the same cream cheese frosting recipe my mom used to make for my cakes when I was a kid and just tossed in the gelatin. This works well for frosting or as a filler between cake layers. Keep refrigerated."
Combine cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, butter, gelatin, milk, and vanilla extract in a bowl using an electric mixer on low speed. Continue to mix, pausing to scrap sides down as needed, until frosting is evenly mixed and fluffy.
