This cream cheese frosting recipe is absolutely delish with carrot cake , red velvet cake, chocolate cake or on its own! This recipe is enough to fill and frost the top of two layers 9" carrot cake. To cover the whole cake, make 1 1/2 the recipe. I have used both regular and light cream cheese. Both turned yummy...
