Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

"Jennifer at bakeorbreakdotcom is 1 of my favorite bloggers. Most of her recipes are feasts for the eyes, taste sensations & easy-to-fix (a big bonus for home cooks like myself). But I occ favor a part of 1 of her recipes more than the whole. That happened recently when I saw this recipe (http://www.bakeorbreak.com/2014/10/apple-spice-cake-cinnamon-cream-cheese-frosting/) & fell in love w/the FROSTING! For the most part, I'm content to eat cake plain, lightly dusted w/powd sugar or lightly glazed. I rarely frost baked goods as I think it's "sugar overkill", but I'm ready to make an exception for this frosting. ENJOY!"
