This is not supposed to be super sweet like regular cream cheese frosting, because it is paired with the brown sugar glaze. A sweet frosting would be sugar overkill. As it is, it's spectacular. Best. Cake. Ever.

Hey everyone, question and answer: Did you know that sugar in our bodies turns to fat. remember: a couple seconds on the lips and a lifetime on the hips.

HEY AWIG, BE CAREFUL IF YOU ARE GOING TO SERVE THIS TO FRIENDS, SOME MAY BE LIKE ME "HYPOGLYCEMIA" AND THAT MUCH SUGAR WOULD PUT US IN THE HOSPITAL. WOW! MAKES ME SICK THINKING ABOUT IT. BUT I'M GLAD YOU LIKE IT. I WILL TRY IT BUT WITH LESS SUGAR AND NO SALT.

1/2 cup of sugar does not make this very sweet. I used 2 cups of sugar.
