In a large bowl, beat together the butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer. With the mixer on low speed, add the powdered sugar a cup at a time until smooth and creamy. Beat in vanilla extract. 

If you're using your frozen shredded zucchini,
there may be quite a bit of liquid in the freezer bag
after thawing.
DO NOT DRAIN! The zucchini "juice" helps keep
this cake super moist!
