I think it really depends on your recipe. Many cream cheese frostings lean on the soft side and aren't really designed for cake decorating. I have used Edna De La Cruz's crusting cream cheese recipe with good results, as it is a crusting cream cheese buttercream. Here's a link to the recipe from her website: http://designmeacake.com/crustcreamcheeseicing.html. Hope that helps!.
