This is yummy. I made this usng a powdered sugar subsitute from Splenda and neufchatel Cheese. My mother-in-law is diabetic so I am trying to learn to bake with Splenda and low fat and this recipe converted well. I think the cinnamon added the extra flavor that helped cover up the changes.

This was really fantastic. I used it to ice the suggested chocolate cinnamon banana cake and it was the perfect compliment. I didn't measure exactly so I probably used a lot less icing sugar, but I liked that it was not too sweet/not too rich and you could still taste the cream cheese- it worked on this cake beautifully.
