Rated 4 out of 5 by Parbqt from Worked well for me I tried this recipe for some Halloween cupcakes my 7 year old wanted to make. We tinted the icing with a bit of orange gel coloring and the consistency worked out fine. I cut the recipe in half because we only had a few cupcakes to do. Recipe at half covered 12 regular size cupcakes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Brit_braun from Delicious but not for decorating Made my friend a red velvet cake for her birthday, I used this recipe for the frosting. It's very delicious & the recipe makes more than enough for a 3 layered cake. However, this frosting is much too loose to do any sort of decoration on the cake. I would typically add more sugar to thicken the frosting but more sugar wouldn't stiffen this up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kaylene17 from Great frosting! This frosting recipe is great! It makes a lot, and has a great flavor. Some cream cheese frosting recipes just some have the flavor I'm looking for, but this one is perfect! It's definitely stiff enough to frost a cake, and to do basic piping (borders or swirls on cupcakes, etc.) but I don't think you'd be able to pipe roses or anything like that without adding too much powdered sugar. I'll definitely be keeping this recipe to use again. It's a winner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lafjob from Great recipe Made this to top two dozen cupcakes, so I cut the recipe in half. Followed the instructions to a "T" and it came out perfect...just right for piping on the tops. Had some left over, maybe enough to fill a few cookies!
