I have cream cheese spread in a container, but not a block of cream cheese. Is it the same, can it be used to make cream cheeses frosting? Thanks

It most likely is watered down to make it spreadable. Depending on your recipe it might be o.k. if you reduce the liquid in the recipe. Might not be as flavorable - taste might not be as bold?

I've used it to make cream cheese frosting and it worked fine. My recipe is half butter, half cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla.
