Laughing Cow is nice for snacking on crackers and such, but I sure wouldn't use it for cream cheese icing!

I agree with everyone. Besides being a more processed cheese, LC is more savoury and wouldn't give the same flavour notes as cream cheese, plus the consistency is different and I doubt it would "cream" enough.

Cream cheese icing needs cream cheese.
