Whipped Cream Frosting

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by CindiJ

Don't let this recipe fool you. It is light and fluffy and not overly sweet. Awesome with Preacher's Chocolate Cake! Cooking/Prep time does not include cooling time.

This is one of my favorite frostings, though the name is mis-leading a bit. I do find if i blend the sugar with the roux while it is still hot, I get a better texture - it "softens" the sugar and I never have a problem with the end product being a little gritty.
