Please update this recipe. I just went by what was on here, it being my first time making this and the frosting didn't come out right. Waste of money. Please update cream cheese frosting recipe with the right measurements!!
I watched the video, and it showed 8oz of cream cheese and 16oz of powdered sugar for the frosting. I finallyfound the recipe on the southern living website....the written recipe...and it said, 2 pkgs of cream cheese, 8 oz each and two 16 oz pkgs of powdered sugar. Well, I had already been to the store and purchased by what the video said! I live several miles from a store....so cake is done, and I don't have enough for the frosting!
