This is an excellent cream cheese frosting. It makes quite a bit, so be generous when frosting your cake! You may need to add a very small bit of milk to get a good spreading consistency. I use this frosting on my Red Velvet Cake.

I chose this recipe because I need a recipe that made alot of frosting and I had alot of cream cheese in my refrigerator to use up. It took a couple of days, but the frosting grew on me. It seems to have a larger proportion of cream cheese to butter and confectioners sugar than other recipes but the taste is still very good. I had enough frosting to cover and decorate an 8" 2-layer cake.
