I have a request for an over the hill style carrot cake with cream cheese icing. Can I color cream cheese icing? will it hold up? anything I need to know before I get started?

Yes you can color it. I use it just like BC, but it is harder to work with and get smooth in my own experiences.

Does anyone has a good cream cheese frosting recipe?

I love cream cheese icing! the recipe I use has great flavor but it is always too thin for piping. It would be great if it was thicker and perhaps had a whipped texture.

Oh yeah...
I have never colored cream cheese icing for fear that it will turn even thinner than what it already was...

If you go here and look under recipes there is a wonderful recipe for cream cheese BC icing. Its really nice to work with I used it on the cake below I was having a very hard time finding a cream cheese for my wedding cakes and alot of people these days seem to prefer the cream cheese over regular buttercream I used to cringe and now I am like cream cheese great lets do cream cheese. LOL. Ok but heres a hint ok what i do with the icing is put a pretty thick crumb coat put the cake in the fridge and wait about a 1/2 hour and take it out and put one more coat. Wait about 15 minutes on the counter then smooth it the Melvira method.
