Combine the creme fraiche and softened butter in the bowl of an electric mixer.
Beat on medium speed until fully mixed and creamy.
Add the powdered sugar, 1/2 cup at a time, with the mixture on low. Continue to add the powdered sugar until you’ve added 2 cups. If it is not at your desired thickness, continue to added powdered sugar, 1/4 cup at a time up to 2 1/2 cups. (The final frosting will be slightly softer than buttercream.)
Mix on medium speed until the frosting is completely smooth.
