This recipe has too little powdered sugar in it to frost using an icing bag. I doubled the powdered sugar and used a large round tip (1 A) to frost as a star tip would not have held the shape. It should also be noted that it needs to be doubled to frost 24 cupcakes or a two layer cake. It is delicious but as is should be used to frost one layer or 12 cupcakes with a knife.

I wish I had read the reviews first because I see that the frosting I have cooling in the refrigerator will not be enough to frost the cake.

My husband usually doesn't like cream cheese icings but he loves this recipe! The trouble is that I left the cake out and the golden retriever got it!

If you double the amount of cream cheese, the recipe is perfect and there will be enough for the whole cake.

The frosting is really good, but it's also really sweet. I added some cocoa powder and it seemed to lighten it some. It was excellent on the cupcakes!

Yes I made three batches and just had a little left over. This frosting is so delicious I have been inventing excuses to make things that I can use it on.

This recipe does not make enough frosting for the wonderful red velvet cake. I had to make another batch to finish the job.
