    For Cream Cheese icing I combine Butter Cream and Soft Cream Cheese, Lemon Zest and lemon juice, blend to smooth.
    I do not like the mouth feel of powder sugar in icings.
    I find Cream Cheese BC is rich and workable for decorating and filling as well.

    I'd really like to make some sort of pumpkin cream cheese frosting. Does anyone have a ratio recommendation? My favorite season is aproaching.

    I never even thought to use milk in Cream Cheese frosting. May I ask where that idea came from? I've never seen it in any C.C. frosting recipes with Milk.
