About this recipe: This topping is a little different than the average cream cheese icing. It's flavoured with ground allspice! It's perfect on spiced cakes, cupcakes or muffins.

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)
