4 cups powdered sugar, 1 stick butter, 1 stick cream cheese and 2 TB lemon juice. It is soup! How do I thicken it? I just put it in the fridge to see if my kitchen too hot? Help?

Add some more icing sugar until it gets to the what you want. I would add about 1/4 cup at a time.

You should probably beat it like crazy, too. I would add more sugar.

Recipe doesn't sound correct for the amount of sugar listed. Try adding 1/2 cup powdered sugar. My frosting I use has one 1/2 cup of butter and 1 1/2 cup shortening and 8 cups of powdered sugar. If you calculate the amount of butter and the cream cheese that you used there's not enough sugar in the recipe.
