I needed frosting for a box cake mix since I didn't have any on hand, and didn't really want to use the traditional whip cream version i have (which uses shortening - very messy and time consuming). This recipe seemed simple enough and I had a bar of cream cheese that needed used. Like another reviewer I added butter (about 4 tbspn). I needed enough for a layer cake, and I actually ended up with enough extra to frost a pan of brownies with. Used half and half, maybe more like 3-4 Tbsp - amount of liquid needed will depend on the amount of sugar used. Followed the directions otherwise, turned out great. This was a birthday cake and I used a piping bag for added decorations, had no trouble piping this, although you do need to work fast since the icing dries almost like a sugar cookie icing once it's applied. Delicious, this is a keeper for my baking box!
