How much Cream Cheese Icing do I need ?

jackzchow | Dec 22, 201008:41 AM

With cakes and frostings I am a novice. I'm making a carrot cake in an 8x8 round, maybe 2-3 inches high.

This is my first cream cheese icing sssoooo....

How much cream cheese icing will I need to make?

Recipe ratios:

4 oz of cream cheese and 4 oz of butter seems like too little ( 8 oz total) and

8 oz of cream cheese and 8 oz of butter seems like way too much (16 oz total).

I'm thinking 6 oz of each may be just right.

Can I use less butter or will that be a problem.

Thanks in advance, JK
