    Hi does anyone know if this sets hard please? All the "crusting" cream cheese icing recipes I have found have yucky shortening in and my standard cream cheese icing recipe, also delicious does not set at all.

    Awesome recipe. Super easy and tastes so good you want to eat it plain! 1lb powdered sugar= 3 3/4 Cups :) I found this soft enough and easily spreadable/squeezable. I made sure the butter and cream cheese were room temp. Perfect topping for cupcakes.

    It has a wonderful flavor but is too thick to spread. I would suggest adding some milk or cream to thin it out.

    just so ya'll know... confectioner's sugar is POWDERED sugar and not GRANULATED. it's very grainy if you mix the two up. trust me, i know from experience.
