This icing is so easy to make. I used for the coconut-lemon cake.

I agree with charoulli, This is the best cream cheese icing I have ever had. My son who does not like cream cheese icing really liked this one.

I needed just cream cheese frosting for a Red Velvet Cake and decided to try this one. It was the best one I ever did (I tried others for the same cake, but didn't taste anything close to this one). I will keep this one as a frosting recipe for sure!
