Perfect. Some tips: beat the cream cheese and butter together until light, fluffy and free of lumps. Sift the powdered sugar and cocoa powder together before adding - again, to ensure no lumps or bumps. Finally, I'd suggest not adding ANY milk until the end, and then do so little by little! Particularly if you're going to pipe this frosting, as I did, you won't want to use the full amount! I wanted a pure chocolate frosting so I didn't add the cinnamon and this is exactly what I was looking for. Smooth, richly chocolate, and the cream cheese makes this a not-too-sweet frosting. I used this to frost "Lori's White Bread Cake," also from this site (a little plug for that lonely but exceptional recipe!) and it was like gilding the lily!
