The best cream cheese icing ever, the secret is in using less cream cheese than a whole carton, this icing does not go runny after you start adding the icing sugar.

-25 g butter, softened

-200 g icing sugar (400 ml)

-A little milk to combine (about 50 ml)

Instructions

Place cream cheese, butter and icing sugar into a food mixer with the balloon whisk.
