Cream Cheese Frosting

READY IN: 5mins
Top Review by Trying to be Trim

The flavor is good, but this (to me) is not frosting. It is a glaze. I made it 2 times thinking I did something wrong the 1st time. The second time I almost doubled the powdered sugar and it was still extremely runny. Would be great on cinnamon rolls or cookies, wasn't so great on my carrot cake. In researching other cream cheese frosting recipes, they don't call for milk. So next time I will omit the milk. The others also have atleast 3 cups of powdered sugar. Making those changes should change this glaze into a frosting ;)
