Cut berries in half (or quarters for larger ones). Put them in a medium bowl and gently toss with 2 teaspoons of flour. Mix the berries into the batter gently.

TO MAKE THE FROSTING: The frosting is made by beating cream cheese and butter on medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy.

Lower the mixer speed. Add confectioners sugar slowly until smooth. Mix in vanilla. Return the mixer to medium speed and mix for 2–3 minutes until the frosting is light and fluffy.
