Maybe you are working your cream cheese too hard. It does break down. I add very little ps to my frosting and I can keep the form of the star tip frosting.

1 lb cc
3/4 lb butter
1 lb ps (up to 1.5 lb)

I normally use Edna's Crusting cream cheese icing it works great, and IMO has the perfect consistency.
