I tried the basic CC frosting and thought it was to sweet, is there another version that is less sweet? The one i tried was with 6-7 cups of PS and that was just to much for me and not really cream cheesey in the end.

I add sour cream to cream cheese icing.

Here's my recipe:

16 oz each unsalted butter and cream cheese
6 - 8 cups sifted powdered sugar
2 tablespoons sour cream

I made this cream cheese icing the other day. It was delicious!

2 sticks butter(1 cup) softened
16 oz cream cheese(softened)
8 cups powered sugar
2 Tbs milk

I know it's still a lot of sugar, but I only used 6 cups. Plus I used more milk, and it was definitely cream cheese tasting. Deliciousicon_smile.gif I don't know what the basic cc one is, but this is great! HTH

I made this , but left out (well, I forgot icon_redface.gif ) the crisco and it was realy yummy. I'm sure it is just as good with the crisco too icon_biggrin.gif

Here's a cream cheese icing that is sweetened with white chocolate instead of powdered sugar. It is also a great icing to use for piping a decoration onto the cake. You'll find it at
