Cream cheese frosting goes runny when I add icing sugar

(26 Posts)

This happens every time I make it. I mix cream cheese and butter until really smooth, and the consistency is perfect. Then I add the sugar, and it goes all runny! I can't pipe it at all. It tastes great but always looks a mess. Where am I going wrong?

hi, I've always been told that the blocks of Philadelphia is better as it is not whipped like the tubs. I need a really stiff, but not too sweet recipe to pipe roses onto my sisters wedding cake (AAAHHHH!!!) does anyone know if philly still comes in blocks anywhere??
