Dairy-free Cream Cheese Icing

We finally made it to our yearly Charleston vacation on the beach. This year we really need a vacation and it is good to be with family and friends once again. As this week is pretty much a food fest, no calorie counting allowed, our first dessert of the week is usually a carrot cake. This year a couple of our attendees have been asking for dairy free items on the menu. I have been researching several non-dairy or dairy-free substitutes and the Daiya and Smart Balance cream cheese and butter subs really are good. The problem in the past has been the mouth-feel or richness of the products on the market. These two have solved that issue. I have used them interchangeable with regular cream cheese and butter in all kinds of recipes that have received rave results.

Try the Daiya shredded cheddar cheese in Mac and Cheese, I added a little bacon as well, a Real Hit!
