1) Frosting has lumps of cream cheese/butter in it
Cause: Cream cheese, butter, or both aren't softened enough.
Solution: Try softening your mixture no matter what step you are at. then re-whip your frosting for 5 minutes on medium-high speed. If this doesn't work, then you have to start over.
2) Frosting tastes "bland"
Cause: You didn't use salted butter, or not enough salt was added.
Solution: Add 1 pinch of salt to the frosting and mix well.
