1/2 block philadelphia cream cheese, not lowfat, not easy spread, chopped. 50g butter, melted. Mash together till blended (will be a bit lumpy). Add icing sugar to taste, and beat until icing is fluffy (I don't measure, but the texture will be good, and it won't be overly sweet. Then add juice of one very fresh lemon and 1/2 tsp vanilla. Hmmmm. could actually be the same as the Edmonds one... *blush*
