I was reading a lot of recipes on the internet but I was looking for something specific. I want the cream cheese frosting to be firm enough for decorating or piping and be able to hold really long even at room temperature or even a bit warmer. The thing is, all the recipes I saw requires a lot of powdered sugar in it to make it firm. But that is where my problem lies, because I, personally, am not a big fan of frosting that is really sweet.

So I tried various measurements and see how much less I can go on with the powdered sugar but still have a cream cheese frosting that is firm enough to pipe or design and be able to hold the whole day.

  1. Hi, Bebs! What are the quantities of cream cheese called for here– two portions of 250g of cream cheese or 200-250g of cream cheese? Thank you in advance!!

    1. Hi Stella, thanks for asking. I edited the recipe to make it more clear. 2 packs of 200g or 250g tub, so 400-500grams in total. Thanks! 🙂
