Like some of the other suggestions I changed up the ratios. I used all 8 oz. of the cream cheese package and only 1 cup of sugar. The frosting turned out absolutely wonderful!! Read More

This was delicious but it is definitely only for cakes-and needs refrigeration! I used it for cupcakes and it didn't firmed up at all. We took the cupcakes somewhere and the icing got all over my tupperware and didn't stay at all on the cupcakes. We wound up with quite a mess and some very ugly cupcakes. It was very yummy mess though! Read More

I like the smooth creamy texture. I used the whole 8 oz creeam cheese though and a little more poweder sugar and still great. I also added just a drop of orange extract which I think compliments carrot cake. I made carrot cupcakes and with the frosting it was very good. Read More

My family absolutely loved this frosting. I followed a few other reviews and used all 8oz of cream cheese and cut the sugar to 1 cup. It was not too sweet while still providing that great cream cheese flavor. I made it several hours before I needed to frost my cake and it set up beautifully! Read More

Made a perfect filling for my chocolate cake. All I added was a teaspoon of vanilla and all I can say is yummy--I was licking the beaters! Read More

Oh Gosh I could not tell you how easy & yummy this recipe is! I followed the directions just like they are but for the ingredients I used lite frozen whipped topping ( Cool Whip) & lite cream cream to lower the calories but no one would ever know by how good this was on my cupcakes on Thanksgiving!
