I absolutely love the flavor of this frosting with the extra creamy option..of course. Although I did have trouble getting it to a firm consistency and had to use more powder sugar than called for in the recipe. FLAVOR.....***** (5 stars) better than any other frosting I have ever had!!! Thanks Kittencal for yet another great recipe that is a keeper.

I didn't want fluffy frosting and can't eat cool whip so I left it out. Tasted great, and looked pretty on my cupcakes. A little thin for my liking, but I mixed it by hand and I know that affects things like consistency.

This is hands down the BEST cream cheese frosting I have ever tasted. The texture is perfect...extreme creaminess. (I used the extra creamy option.) Not the over powering cream cheese taste that I usually run into. Seriously folks, I am no fan of cream cheese frosting, but this frosting has changed that!!Thank you so much for posting this! It went perfect with my Devilish Devil's Food Cake!

This is a delicious tasting frosting. Kittencal recommended it for Kittencal's White Cake and it was perfect. I probably added about an additional cup of sifted confectioner's sugar to get it to the correct consistency. Once I was at that point there was no need for me to add Cool Whip frozen whipped topping. Everyone who ate the cake commented on how delicious the frosting was.

Excellent Icing!!! This recipe is a keeper!!!!! Can control how sweet the cake is by adding the powdered sugar bits at a time - also dont skip the cool-whip - i also added it bits at a time - you can control how rich or light you want the icing to be!!! Excellent Excellent Recipe!!! Thanks again Kittencal ! You are the greatest!!!!

This was just what I needed for my Waldorf-Astoria Red Velvet Cake. I love that I had control over the sweetness and texture. I didn't want the frosting very sweet because I was afraid it would compete with the subtle flavor of the cake, so I decreased the sugar by almost a cup and used 1.5 cups of Cool Whip. It was perfect. Thanks for another great one Kitten!

What a wonderful cream cheese frosting! Went perfectly with Banana Cake; 1.5c was plenty to frost a two-layer 9x5 cake, with frosting in between layers and all the way around (probably woulda been extra if I could have kept my fingers out of it!). I did add a bit more sugar to mine to get a heavier frosting. I also subbed 1/3 reduced-fat cream cheese without any problems at all. Thank you Kit for a wonderful frosting for my cake!

Delicious, light & creamy... this is a terrific frosting! I made it to go on a vanilla cake and topped it with sliced strawberries in sugar syrup. What a wonderful cake!
