This icing is special. It's not overly sweet, yet it really makes a cake pop. I used this icing on cream cheese caramel almond pound cake. I topped the cake off with some fresh strawberries. All of the ingredients blended well. The icing is a good transition between the fruit and the cake.
I wanted to update my review. This frosting is EXCELLENT. It tastes light and refreshing BUT it is STURDY!! I've made several cakes (uploaded my castle and luau cake) with this frosting and it holds up great. It has a nice shiny appearance as well. I can't get over how excellent it is.
*Just added my Pinkalicious cake made with this icing....I love, love, love this icing and I make it exactly as stated. This frosting does even better after you've decorated if you stick the structure (cake) back in the fridge....it "stiffens" up enough to hold and retain its appearance without tasting stiff or hard. THE BEST EVER!!!
One of the easiest recipes I've used for cream cheese icing. I put in onto mini carrot cakes that are in my freezer for OAMC. The leftover I added some extra cool whip and used to dip apple slices in.
I love this recipe, it is very versatile. if you want a very sweet icing, use more sugar, if you want a less sweet icing use less sugar. Also, the more sugar you use, the stiffer the icing becomes.
Absolutlety wonderful, over a carrot cake. I give a well deserved 5 stars to this recipe.
Thanks for a wonderful and tasty icing recipe. I agree with all of the other 5 star comments this is a keeper.
This is a great icing! Made it for a birthday cake at the office and EVERYONE thought it was great and so so easy to make. Thanks!
WOW! I was shocked at how good it was when I first made it! I used it on on red velvet cupcakes and now my friends are calling me cupcakes -.-;; Very pleased with the results.
This icing is awesome! I used it on a devils chocolate cake. Everyone LOVED it. I had problems using it to decorating the cake though. I was using a pastry bag with a star tip.
This is a WONDERFUL recipe except I use just regular sugar to make it instead of powdered. It gives it a little texture. That is the way that my granny-whom I first got this recipe from- makes it. I always buy a box of devils chocolate cake mix and I make it a double layer cake and use this icing. Its just to die for.
