Creamy Cream Cheese Icing

"The secret ingredient in my Carrot Pecan Cupcakes recipe is the icing. This Creamy Cream Cheese Icing is a dessert game changer. Sometimes I put a layer on pumpkin pie, my sweet potato pie, or my Nilla Wafer Pecan Coconut Cake and it enhances the flavor of the entire dessert. So, if you want to put a sweet spin on your favorite dessert please try this Creamy Cream Cheese Icing!"
