Perfect Cream Cheese Icing

NOT A HUGE SWEET TOOTH?

Watermarked51

Although I usually take icing off of sweets or avoid baking with icing altogether, I can’t resist a good cream cheese icing.

However, even then, I find that it is often too sweet so I have resorted to making my own.  It is so simple that it literally takes less than 5 minutes and comes out perfect every time.

Since then, I have discovered interesting variations such as adding a bit of pumpkin spice to the mixture or cocoa powder or even flavoured extracts.  You can’t go wrong.

I really like this basic icing to accompany the banana or pumpkin spice cake from yesterday’s post.
