what can i do with a ton of cream cheese icing besides carrot cake and red velvet?

no that those aren't great, but already made copious amounts of both.

  1. Amazing, we're in the same boat! I'm going to re-purpose mine into cheesecake. I just need to go buy MORE plain cream cheese to mix into my frosting mix. LOL.

    1. use it as a filling for homemade danish. You'd probably want to add an egg if I'm recalling the recipe correctly. Although if it has butter in it I'm not so sure it would work...

      Or smear it on graham crackers as a treat.

          +1. And send them here!!

          Also frost the top of a sour cream coffee cake with it or top indulgent pumpkin pancakes or cherry crepes!

          1. It freezes fine, so you don't need to use it now. My favorite frosting is cream cheese. I use it on any cake or cupcake that needs to be frosted. Recipes for Hummingbird Cake, a Southern tradition (nuts, banana, pineapple, coconut) call for cream cheese frosting.
