    Be forwarned: This needs 8 oz. not 3 oz. of cream cheese! With 8 oz, it is a great spin on the classic, otherwise it's fatally flawed and tastes like sugar wax.  -  25 Mar 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Beautiful frosting. Delicious and spiced just right. Three cups of powdered sugar was just right for me too, not four, and my 5-star rating reflects that change. I used this frosting to frost "Beer Spice Cake," also from this site, made into cupcakes. Perfect.  -  06 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The allspice really adds to this otherwise ho-hum frosting recipe. I used it on the Apple Cinnamon Pecan Cake from this site. What a treat! Thanks V Monte!  -  20 Jun 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
