Our go-to cupcake frosting recipe. This one always gets rave reviews and doubles as a perfect cake frosting!!
- 1 8 oz pkg cream cheese, at room temp
- 1 1/2 cups powdered confectioners sugar
- 1 1/2 cups cold heavy whipping cream
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Cooks Tip: For best results with whipped cream, freeze your mixing bowl and whisk attachment 10-15 minutes before using. Also keep the heavy whipping cream refrigerated until ready to use.
Whip the cream on high speed (1-2 minutes) until thick, fluffy and spreadable.
In a second mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and powdered sugar (start on low speed unless you want to be standing in a cloud of powdered sugar), then beat in 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mix. Keep it covered in the fridge until ready to use on these cupcakes.
