I made a profile, just to rate this frosting. Yes, it is that good. It has a luscious, smooth and fluffy texture, thanks to the whipping cream. For those who say it is too sweet, yes, with an overly sweet cake/cupcake, I suppose it would be. My favorite pairing for this is a white cupcake with a tart fresh raspberry puree filling. The tart filling and frosting are a match made in heaven! I would also like to note that I have made a milk chocolate frosting using this exact same recipe with a milk chocolate baking bar. I did have to add a tbsp of cocoa to amp up the chocolate a bit, but it made an incredible milk chocolate frosting as well Thanks Kittencal, simply amazing!

It took a while to hit the first fluffy stage (After 5 minutes I turned my beater up to a medium speed and had to give it 5 minutes more)--but when all was added and mixed, I ended up with a super-airy, creamy, sweet frosting that went perfectly atop a blue velvet cake. Yum!

this is good second time i made it, i did add extra powdered sugar to thicken, just added 1 tbs cream but to the previous comment about too sweet, you really need beat this, stand mixer with whip attachment works great, it incorporates the sugar not as sweet
