Here is one I just used for my daughter's birthday. This recipe made enough to lightly frost a bundt cake. It is simple and tastes great!
Happy baking -- enjoy! (05/17/2006)

I take 2 cups of powdered sugar, 2- 8oz pkgs of cream cheese (softened) and mix it with an 8 oz tub of cool whip ... Extremely good and light tasting. (05/17/2006)
funny yesterday i wanted some and did not want to
run out so;
I just mixed until it tasted good and yum
husband noticed he said this frosting didn't
even taste like canned he was surprised when
I said i made it.
I use this recipe for a 9"x13" carrot cake.
Note: Sometimes I change the extract for another flavor like raspberry, etc.
I also stock up on cream cheese when it goes on sale and just freeze it. It freezes nice for icing or in baking dishes. (05/18/2006)
1 box of powdered sugar mixed with 8 oz. of softened cream cheese and just a drop of vanilla! Mix and enjoy! (05/18/2006)
The easiest and best recipe that I know of is equal amounts of cream cheese and real butter (3-4 oz each) one tsp vanilla, a shake of salt, and enough powdered sugar to make it spreadable.

Mix all ingredients together. If too thick, add a little milk.
If too thin, add a little powdered sugar.
Spread on cake and Enjoy
Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting: add 1/3 to 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa if you want the frosting to be chocolate. You will need less powdered sugar though. I add the cocoa before I add the powdered sugar. Then I just keep adding the sugar until the frosting has a texture and thickness I like.
