"The flavor of this icing was quite good - the orange really adds a nice zip. However, it's quite thin. It's not the consistency I was hoping for when I think of cream cheese frosting. I added some mor..." See moree cream cheese, and that helped. Just keep in mind that this is very sugary - not butter or cheese based like many.

The yield was substantially shy of 3 cups, and I can't see leaving out the 1/2 cup of sugar affecting that outcome. Good to know if you are expecting or needing the full yield. I would make this again, but may try increasing the cream cheese and using orange juice concentrate instead of juice."
