Cream Cheese Frosting Help

I love carrot cake. And carrot cake is just not carrot cake without the requisite cream cheese frosting. But I don't like what my cream cheese frosting does--that is, to drip down the sides of the cake as I'm trying to put it on! Does anyone have a recipe for cream cheese frosting that is stiffer than mine? Otherwise, I'm thinking of going with a whipped white chocolate ganache instead. Somebody please stop me before I make a terrible mistake!
