Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yummmmy Hi Buffy, You probably are not adding enough powered sugar... Try adding 1/2 cup additional at a time keep beating, adding more untill it's the thickness you're looking for..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Philadelphia Crean Cheese Frosting How do I get my frosting to firm up? My cream cheese frosting always comes out too soft.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and Made with Love This was a very SIMPLE Cream Cheese Frosting to make. I always use KRAFT products only. Once made I decided to add a couple of my own ingredients. OMG! it was amazing. To make it additionally FUN for the kids I used a Boxed Confetti Cake Mix which added lots of color.
