This frosting is delicious! The only change I made was that I added another block of reduced fat cream cheese which made just enough for a 9 inch 2 layer cake. This will definitely be my 'go to' recipe for cream cheese frosting!

Yummy! Omitted the lemon and used on red velvet cake. Thanks for a great recipe!

I have used this recipe several times on carrot cake cupcakes for kids' birthdays. I don't think I've used the lemon just because I don't usually keep lemons. I used full fat cream cheese and butter--if you're going to indulge, indulge! Otherwise I follow the recipe and the results are delicious. I have to hide the leftovers because my kids will eat it off the spoon (leaving less for me!) Far better than store bought frosting. Will definitely use it again--this morning, in fact!
