I was looking for a different frosting for my Red Velvet cupcakes and this one is a sure winner! I did cut the sugar in half as I don't like using so much. I cut the sugar to a 1/2 cup. When it came time to incorporate the sugar, cream cheese, vanilla mixture into the prepared whipped cream, it wouldn't incorporate so matter how I folded it. At this point, I dumped it back into the mixture and whipped it for around 30 seconds and it fixed it just fine. Might be the cream cheese wasn't soft enough initially which would be my fault since I was a tad impatient. None the less, its a fabulous recipe that I can see using for a variety of desserts. Next time, I plan on cutting the sugar a tad bit more. Hubby tried a cupcake and he isn't found of sweets but he raved about it, that alone tells me its a winner!
Yummo! This wasn't substantial enough (thick) to pile high, but it will def be my new go-to when I don't need to build pillows of clouds :) Thanks so much for this, made my son's entire football team lick their fingers totally clean!
Enjoyed this on some red velvet cake. Yummy!
Super yummy! Kids devoured it on vanilla cupcakes. TFS!
I totaly agree, this recipe is perfection...... Taste, texture couldn't be better.. Made it some time ago, thought I had reviewed it, however it seems I didn't. DH really enjoyed it; said just the perfect. sweetness. Making it again tomorrow.
So glad you shared it kitten.
We pipe this onto our favorite chocolate cupcakes
and when we bite into them it's almost too good to be true.
I followed the recipe almost exactly, only substituting with strawberry flavored cream cheese to top a red velvet (from mix) cake. What a crowd pleaser! The frosting came out a pretty, pale pink that was beautiful on the deep red cake. I will use this recipe often. I think I will try the pineapple cream cheese next!
The perfect, light, not-too-sweet, not too cream-cheesy frosting! I did exactly as directed. I can see using almond extract but don't know why anyone would want to add vanilla pudding mix to such a great frosting. Thank you for sharing!
Finally a perfect whipped cream cream cheese frosting recipe! I did add almond extract for the vanilla and I added the zest of a large orange to the cream cheese mixture. When I finally was able to pull the beater away from my mouth I put the yummy frosting on top of my orange zucchini cake.....RockChalkChick's Just One More Bite... Orange Zucchini Cake, #242219. It's just what my cake needed! This frosting, especially with the orange zest, would be perfection on a bagel or waffles. Thanks for sharing!
Light, fluffy and delicious! Used this on Lemonade Cupcakes with yellow food coloring. Thank you for sharing!
