I have to make a carrot cake today and need a crusting cream cheese icing that I can use to ice the cake and pipe borders. Thanks for any help.[/b]
There is a recipe on this site that I have used that works really well.
1/2 cup softened butter
1 8 oz package cream cheese
3.5 - 4 cups sugar depending on your preference
1 tsp vanilla
Mix butter and cream cheese, add vanilla and sugar. That's it. Simple and tasty, and it crusts.
made this 2 days ago. GREAT!

I have been blessed to have this incredible cream cheese frosting that forms a nice crust so it is ideal for decorating cakes. It tastes so good that i've been using this recipe more than any other frosting recipe i have.
1/2 cup of shortening
1/2 cup (one stick) unsalted butter @ room temp
1 8oz bar cream cheese @ room temp
1 tblsp white vanilla extract
2 lbs shifted powder sugar
1/2 tsp salt
Cream together shortening, butter, and cream cheese until nice and smooth. Add vanilla into mixture and combine. Sift together sugar and salt, and slowly add to shortening, butter & cheese mixture. Make sure that all sugar is incorporated. Enjoy!
*If to stiff of a consistency use less sugar but all the salt or gradually add milk to make the perfect consistency!
