    Cream cheese icing is toooo…..creamy for me, lol. It tastes too much like actual cream cheese, and in my opinon, isn’t as versatile as buttercream icing, in terms of going with more flavors. What flavor cake are you getting?

    I personally like both, so can’t be of much help there! Buttercream tends to be smoother and richer, and easier to make look spectacular. But a good cake baker will be able to work with any medium. Cream cheese frosting tastes very decadent in a different way – in that it’s thicker.

    PS: I made a white chocolate cream cheese frosting that was delicious for my last cake trial! So you can check out white chocolate variations as well for less of that “hey! I’m cream cheese!” taste. It even went really well with the top tier, which was chocolate cake with a chocolate ganache.

    I love both!  Cream cheese has a milkier taste on the back of your tongue…buttercream is really sugary.  Both are but buttercream is soo sweet!

    it depends on the flavor of the cake – buttercream for something like chocolate. but cakes like red velvet and carrot cake call for cream cheese frosting…

    It depends on the type of cake.  Carrot or spice cake – definitely cream cheese icing.  On other types of cake I generally prefer buttercream icing.

    I know a fair number of people who don’t like cream cheese frosting. I love all types, though only remember having cream cheese frosting on red velvet and carrot cake.

    Fondant icing!  Even though I can only stand a bite of it, I love the chewy texture and also how smooth and sleek it looks on wedding cakes!

    You can’t go wrong with either, but I adore buttercream.  It is very difficult to find true buttercream (found this out the hard way and 7 cakeries later finally found one).

    I love both. We are doing buttercream on the outside of the cake and different cream cheese mousse flavors on the inside, so we get both.

    I like both but I usually scrape half of the icing off anyways. Its all too sweet for me.
