Cream Cheese Frosting

A delicious smooth rich and creamy frosting with many applications. Cupcakes, cinnamon and orange rolls, sugar cookies, pumpkin cookies, and cakes.

Especially delicious spread on a warm cinnamon roll and allowed to melt into all the crevices. Then eaten warm.

This does not work great for decorating in a bag because it is too soft. Use traditional decorating frosting.
