    Your method for the cream cheese icing is absolutely brilliant. The first batch I made was as listed apart from the cream and used whipping cream as that was all I had, and it came out perfect. The 2 batch I made I added tsp vanilla extract organic and even that came out excellent. As for the 3rd batch I used Splenda instead of icing and that was also 5/5, I placed all three in the fridge for an hour then took them tried the consistency and all were great. All I can say is that Thankyou for your top tip and was really pleased that no one could tell the difference between the sugary one and the Splenda. If I could I'd give you a rating of 10/10. Thanks again  -  20 Jul 2012


    This was exactly what I wanted to top a carrot cake. Didn't have cream so used a couple of tablespoons of tinned evaporated milk and it tasted really gorgeous. Will use again.  -  13 May 2014


    This would be five stars if adjusted as follows: 1 box confectioners sugar, 8 oz. cream cheese, 1 tsp. flavoring and 1 tablespoon milk. The consistency then is excellent. Have Cream cheese at room temp. and use an electric mixer for blending all together. Great taste and easy to make.  -  24 Nov 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
