Reviews for Cream Cheese Frosting
Sort By :
"Wonderful flavor, this is the only cream cheese frosting I use. I use an 8oz cream cheese instead of 2, 3oz pkgs. It is excellent on home made cinnamon rolls."
"Tasty and really easy to put together."
"Very smooth and easy. Used less confectioners sugar than called for - great"
"This frosting, even with 6 cups of powdered sugar, was too loose for my use. I used real cream cheese, so I know it's not the fat content. I'll eat it as a spread because it is tasty, but I'll use another recipe for a cake frosting."
"It was great just as is (I only used 5 cups confectioners' sugar - any more would have been too sweet for me). I would definitely recommend it as a basic cream cheese frosting - I used it to decorate half of our cupcakes. However, I wanted some with a more "cream-cheesy" taste so I added a little more cream cheese - it was perfect, but only do that if you like to taste the "tang" of the cream cheese."
