What to do with leftover cream cheese frosting?

I made a homemade carrot cake, with my own home grown carrots but I digress, yesterday for my DS's 25th birthday. I have about one cup or so of cream cheese frosting leftover. I put it on as thick as I could on the cake but ended up having some left. What can I do with it?

BTW, the cake was great. It was also quite good for breakfast with a cup of coffee. It had everything you need for a healthy breakfast; fruit, vegetable, grain, dairy, eggs and lots of fiber. LOL I got the recipe from here I think. I looked through all my cookbooks and not one had a recipe for carrot cake. I thought that was strange since it has been popular, at least with me, for over 30 years. I had lost my old recipe.
Thanks.

Cinnamon rolls?

Snack by the spoonful?

Yummy, nothing better than carrot cake!

Spread between graham crackers and freeze! Yummy "ice cream" sandwich! I used to make these for a quick treat when all my kids were at home. Good for an "oops, no dessert" night.

Cinnamon rolls is a great idea.
Freeze the frosting for use later.
Fill a chocolate, pumpkin, zucchini or carrot roll with it.

Not a bad problem to have!! :)

Is this a trick question?

Freeze it....use it for the next time you make cinnamon rolls...or cup cakes.
But it will keep for a couple of months in the refrigerator...if you can keep the spoon out of it!

"Leftover cream cheese frosting" is a self-canceling oxymoronic phrase. Ain't happening in this house!

"self-cancelling oxymoronic" is a repetitive redundancy.

If you're in Aptos, Clare, I'm only a 4-hour drive from you.

I'll have the coffee pot going and some biscotti to dip into your frosting!

Sandwich between chocolate chunk cookies and freeze. Awesome!

Heck, buy some cinnamon raisin bagels or bread...toast, spread, mmmmmm.

Core strawberries, pipe it in, and plug the ends with chocolate chips.

All your suggestions sound yummy. I was thinking of cinnamon rolls or filling for cookies or icing for cupcakes. Maybe I will freeze it and save it for something after we finish this cake.

I've found that leftover cream cheese frosting tastes great on my fingers ;-).

That reminds me riverrat...

Emily Post, queen of etiquette, stated once, "French fries should never be eaten with the fingers. The fingers should be eaten separately."

And YEAH, sushipup -- but do you have the coffee and biscotti waiting????

I can't add much to what's been posted so far. My group loves it on cinnamon rolls...then there is the spoon and fingers.

I was wondering - would it be good on the summer torte? I am making a fresh peach one tomorrow for breakfast. Could just put a dollop of it on the torte when serving. Or would the frosting be a bit much?

In the old days, my mom always spread left over icing on graham crackers, topped it with another gramham cracker, and stores them in the refrigerator for snacks. With 4 kids in the family, they did not make it through the day.

With left over pie crust, she baked stickies--rolled out the remaining dough, buttered it, sprinkled it with light brown sugar and a little cinnamon, folded the dough in half and sealed the edges and baked. These stickies never had a chance to cool completely before they disappeared.
