For icing, cream together cream cheese and butter. Add powdered sugar and meringue powder and mix well, add a small amount of cream or milk to thin till spreadable. I beat my icing for 10 minutes with a flat paddle for a light and fluffy icing.
I use meringue powder as it gives the icing a light crust making them easier to store.
