This has been my favorite 'go-to' frosting recipe for as long as I have been diabetic which is over 22 years. It is so easy and tastes so good as well as having very few calories, carbohydrates and low-fat.
I really couldn't see using anything else for my family of diabetics and it generally works well with most of my diabetic baked goods. Besides, who doesn't like cream cheese? NOT ME!!!
OH! It works well as a fruit dip too!
*The cake is one my great-niece made for me last February for my birthday using my frosting recipe.
