Cream Cheese Frosting For Blue Suede Cake

Kathie Carr


This frosting tastes more like cheesecake than most icings. It is not too sweet. That's why I like it. If you want very sweet you can probably find another recipe that has more sugar.

I think this is perfect for the Blue Suede Cake recipe I posted earlier.

I have had this recipe for a long time and am not aware of its origin.
