Maybe it's just because I'm a guy, but I don't understand the need for these oddball measurements. Who measures cream cheese by the tablespoon? or butter by thirds. Here's my simplified ingredients list: 4 oz. (1/2 pkg) cream cheese 4 oz. (1 stick) butter 2 cups confectioners sugar 1 tablespoon cream 1 teaspoon vanilla More or less to taste or to adjust consistency.

I made the following adjustments in response to other reviewers: 8 oz cream cheese 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla 1/2 C butter 3 C powdered sugar NO cream I whipped this all together with an electric mixer and it was great. Not too sweet, not to cream cheese intense. You'll want to lick this bowl!


A number of reviewers have changed the measurements of ingredients in this recipe to the point where it isn't even this recipe anymore. Only because I wanted to pipe this frosting on cupcakes did I eliminate the cream, leaving all else the same. While I do have my favorite recipes, I'm always game to try variations. Unfortunately, this recipe will not take over others I've tried. It was not firm enough to pipe even after a half hour of refrigeration--the point being that even if you intend to just simply frost the cake I would still do so without the cream called for.
