    Perfect icing!! Very simple.......Used 1 1/2 cups of powdered sugar, as we don't like an overly sweet icing to take away from our cake. One batch iced the whole red velvet cake with nothing left to spare.

    I love making this icing for carrot cake. It is also good on pumpkin cookies. You can't go wrong with this recipe.

    i used about 2/3 the stick of butter as per linazee's suggestion, and only 1 1/2 cups of sugar. it really turned out great, it was fluffy, kept its form, wasn't runny. lovely tangy flavour, but not overwhelmingly cream-cheesy. I used it on a sponge sandwich filled with whipped cream and raspberry preserves. A perfect companion.

    like previous suggestions i cut the sugar and used 2 cups. i also used about 2/3 of the stick of butter instead of the whole thing. to make it easier to work with i softened the butter and cream cheese together for 1 min on 50%power. creamy and delicious. the reduced sugar really highlights the tangy-ness of the cream cheese

    Very good frosting! I made pumpkin brownies and frosted it with this and everyone loved it. One of my daughters told me it was the best frosting ever! A keeper :-)
