Cream Cheese Frosting is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from pretty tasty This frosting is a little tangier and denser than the "traditional" cream cheese frosting, but I actually prefer it to my usual high-calorie recipe. You could whip it to incorporate more air and make it fluffier if that's the way you like it, but I like the denser texture (and so do my kids). I've also made this recipe substituting fat-free cream cheese for the neufchatel cheese. That was acceptable, but I needed to add a little LorAnn cream cheese extract to bump up the flavor. Overall, this is a very good recipe, especially for those of us that are watching our fat and calorie intake.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from An added surprise!! Was pleasantly surprised at how creamy it was and tasty.....I put it on top of my "carrotcake" cupcakes and then used a medicine syringe and shot some into the middle of the cupcake(about a Tablespoon) for an added surprise! Delicious!! When I told my family there was no sugar used in the cheese cream icing, they couldn't believe it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Eh... If you like tangy frosting....this is the frosting for you. It isn't the Truvia that makes it tangy, it's the fat free cream cheese. I tried adding cinnamon and extra milk to get rid of the tanginess but it didn't work. Went to the store and got rhe regular stuff.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super easy My only complaint is that without the salted butter that is often called for in such a recipe, the result is a bit too sour for my taste. Add a little baking soda -- anywhere from a pinch to maybe 1/8 tsp (?) to knock the tart edge down to something more subtle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful texture I use Truvia all the time for all my baking. I LOVE the natural flavor of Truvia and the benefit of sugar free frosting! However, I do run my Truvia through my coffee grinder to make it a powdered sugar texture for wonderful frosting!!
