This is a wonderfully creamy cream cheese frosting that goes well with pumpkin cake, carrot cake, chocolate cake, banana cake and more. If you want chocolate frosting, add 4 to 8 tablespoons of best quality cocoa powder, according to how rich you want it.
Sorry, but if were possible to give 0 stars I would. I made this according to the recipe but it was extremely runny. The addition of more icing sugar didn't help, and made it become more like normal icing. Personally I think the proportion of moist ingredients to dry was far too high. As I had no cream cheese left, I had to resort back to a trusted butter icing recipe (Which had more icing sugar than butter, and was perfect!) - 18 Mar 2012
Have just made this recipe and it is the first that didn't go runny. I recommend using full fat cream cheese and do not over mix. Really lovely recipe - thank you! - 08 May 2011
I changed the standard cream cheese for Pilly with cadburys choclate in it and it was amazing. Made enough to sandwich a sponge cake and cover it. - 30 Jun 2012
