Because Cream Cheese Icing is a Terrible Thing to Waste…

Lately when I make icing I haven’t been using a recipe, I’ve just been estimating quantities of things that taste good, (like butter, cream cheese, icing sugar and vanilla bean paste) and mixing them together.  This means that I occasionally end up with too little icing and have to make more, or I have too much icing and refuse to throw away the extra.  I then I have to find a use for the extra icing besides simply piping it into my mouth.  Piping it into a strawberry and then popping that strawberry into my mouth is so much classier and more socially acceptable…

Ohhh this post would have come in handy last night when I was spooning my left over chocolate lamington icing/sauce into my mouth straight from the bowl, with it running down my face and looking ever so not classy! Yuuumm idea!!

Here in France it's not usual to use cream cheese icing and I can't find a good recipe, could you share yours with me/us?

Ha I do that too! I make a big batch of frosting and any leftovers, I find another use for. I've actually used leftover cream cheese frosting, added an egg, and made it the marbling in pumpkin cream cheese bundt cake and it was delicious.
