This cloud like frosting is equally at home on top of a cinnamon bun or a cake. Make and enjoy!!!!! Double the cream and use it with Chocolate Wafer Ice Box Cake With Fresh Strawberries. Or add some Bourbon and create another profile.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat the cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth and fluffy.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat the heavy cream to nearly stiff peaks, then add the whipped cream into the cheese mixture and quickly and briefly beat to combine.
  3. Do not over beat.

My new favorite cream cheese frosting recipe! I was making an impromptu dessert for company, was limited slightly by ingredients, so only having to use 3/4 c powdered sugar fit the bill! I didn't have any heavy whipping cream, so I subbed cool whip. It was easy & delicious! Thank you for posting.
