Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cream Cheese Frosting I had no clue that you could use Truvia as a base for cream cheese frosting. This will be amazing as I make several cakes to take to our Apartment Center where many of us are on restricted diets. Thank you for making this available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truvia Saves the Day! I have been using Truvia for my go-to sweetener for the past 6 months. This cream cheese frosting is great on any cake. My favorite is the Italian Cream Cake I make with Truvia. My husband loves it on lemon cake.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A better alternative Great recipe as it avoids use of tons of powdered sugar and uses a less fat ridden alternative to regular cream cheese. I too did not use the whole amount of Truvia listed

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good tasting and easy Used this frosting on the chocolate and vanilla cupcakes. It is a tasty and easy frosting. I added less Truvia than the recipe called for as I did not want it too sweet.
