The trick to making cream cheese icing is to use the cream cheese right out of the refrigerator. Otherwise you end up with a gooey mess; having to add copious amounts of icing sugar and the cake still slip sliding every which way as you try to decorate. So you end up serving the cake in desert cups pretending that you intended to serve it that way. Remember, the butter should be close to room temperature, but the cream cheese has to be cold.

1/4 cup low fat cream cheese, cold
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 tsp pure vanilla
1-1/2 cups icing sugar, sifted

• Quickly beat the cold cream cheese with the softened butter.
• Stir in the vanilla.
• Gradually beat in the icing sugar and beat just until smooth.
  Yields one layer of icing. To decorate a cake, double the recipe.
