This smooth, versatile frosting has a delicate vanilla flavor. The woman who made the wedding cake for our daughter, Leanne, and her groom, Billy Waters, used this recipe. It's also excellent on carrot cake.

MY REVIEW

Very smooth and easy. Used less confectioners sugar than called for - great

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 26, 2013

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.

MY REVIEW

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.
