cream cheese icing

nothing says spring time like a carrot cake with cream cheese icing.  using your favorite carrot cake recipe or even a store bought carrot cake mix, try this icing recipe for a tasty frosting.

mix three ounces of softened cream cheese, with 2 tablespoons of softened unsalted butter.  using a hand mixer, slowly add 2 cups of powdered sugar and one teaspoon of vanilla.

this is a quick and tasty icing recipe that complements the carrot cake nicely.  i used a pastry bag to decorate the top of a one layer carrot cake.  enjoy for an Easter or spring time dessert.
