Light & Silky Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Ambervim

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.

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.

  3. Do not over beat.
