    When DH went grocery shopping for me :)love:), I included the ingredients for the mini carrot cakes. I said he could pick up light cream cheese, so he came home with fat free cream cheese. Before I make them with it, I wondered had anyone tried it with FF cream cheese. Will it hold up okay? Should I just go to the store and get some light cream cheese or regular instead?

    It should be fine, since you are mixing it with other things....

    Be careful not to overmix...sometimes the FF cream cheese will seperate and be really lumpy if you overmix.

    On its own, FF cream cheese is pretty nasty. But I think it'll be OK in frosting, since you're combining it with sugar and butter. Which defeats the purpose of having FF. ;)

    LOL! Good point! :D

    My theory is that it'll cut down on some of the additional fat and calories. I've lost all my baby weight from baby #2...now on to losing all my baby weight from baby #1. 22 pounds down...23 more to go! :rolleyes:
