    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This makes the most wonderful creamy dreamy frosting and to make this even more creamy and fluffy add in 1-2 cups thawed Cool Whip frozen topping start with 1 cup and add in more until desired texture, this frosting freezes well ----- for coconut-cream cheese frosting add in 1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon coconut extract and reduce the vanilla to 1 teaspoon, also add in 1/2 cup sweetened flaked or shredded coconut at the end of beating

      This is without doubt the best cream cheese frosting EVER!!!
      I was in the middle of making it and realized I didn't have whipping cream, I didn't even have whole milk, so I used what I had, Lactaid skim milk and I did add a cup of Cool was so delicious. The Cool Whip made it really creamy and cut the heaviness of the cream cheese and butter.
      Not only did it taste wonderful, it piped out beautifully. Thank you so much for this recipe.

      OUTSTANDING frosting!!! I've tried cream cheese frostings before and they have always ended up runny, but this frosting held its shape beautifully and was so tasty!! I used this frosting to top Easy Red Velvet Cupcakes or Cake. I used Wilton's clear vanilla to keep the frosting white. Thanks Kitten for another homerun!! :)
