Cashew Cream Cheese Icing

20131126-200551My Cashew Cream Cheese Icing is easy to make.   I love this recipe on carrot, pumpkin or apple muffins, cupcakes or cakes!  If you loved cream cheese in the past you will love this  version made with cashews.  Smooth icing with a sweet buttery smooth cream cheese taste.
