The taste was both satisfying and intriguing; *chocolate* cream cheese was new to me! I used both the cinnamon as well as 1/2 teaspoon cayenne and only 3 cups sugar as opposed to 4 and only 3 T milk. I whipped the cream cheese, butter and vanilla first, per folks' suggestion. My disappointment came with the texture, which is really just personal preference and not anything the recipe ever promised to be: thick, sticky and a bit too cocoa-powdery, even after 12 hours. I haven't made too many homemade icings in my time so wasn't sure what to expect and had hoped for a little more fluffiness. I think next go I would whip some heavy cream first into soft peaks and try folding it in. The recipe produces plenty -- I had about 3/4-1 cup left after icing a 9*13.
