    Tastes awesome. I use it in my cookie cake. I was worried that when I cut the cake the frosting will just spill out the sides, it doesn't. I got so many compliments.  -  23 Apr 2014


    YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY! Thank you! A few of you have mentioned lumps in the frosting. What works for me, I warm my mixing bowl with hot water first. It is just enough warmth to "melt?" the cream cheese. Then use a chilled bowl for the Whipped cream, whip till very stiff. Maybe why some are having trouble with it being runny. Fold together and it is absolutely scrumptious!! Awesome flavor! So much lighter than a Cream Cheese frosting. It won't over power the flavor of your cake. Had many requests. MAY I ADD A HINT TO ALL WHO HAVE HAD TROUBLE WITH THIS RECIPE BEING RUNNY! IF USING THE SAME BOWL AND BEATERS YOU MUST WHIP THE CREAM FIRST. IF THERE IS EVEN A HINT OF THE CREAM CHEESE (OILY SUBSTANCE) IN THE BOWL OR ON THE BEATERS YOU WILL NOT GET YOUR CREAM TO "WHIP" UP TO A STIFF CONSISTENCY, WHICH MEANS THE FROSTING WILL BE TOO RUNNY. YOU MUST TRY AGAIN. VERY DELICIOUS!  -  19 Oct 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
