Oh thank you so much!!!!
I thought of another question. How long will this icing keep? I'm using it on cupcakes today to test the icing and it seems like a lot.
My daughter's 1st birthday is on the 18th. Do you think it will keep in the fridge until then so I can use on her cake.

Sure! It will be fine to keep that long.

If the recipe you are using has the following ingredients it should keep in the refrigerator through the expiration date on the cream cheese.
