Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Icing
Updated: Jan 22, 2020
1 qt heavy whipping cream
2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 8oz packages cream cheese
First you'll make whipped cream. Add heavy cream, vanilla, and 3/4 cup powdered sugar to stand mixer with whisk attachment.
Start on low speed, and increase speed as consistency thickens. When whipped cream reaches soft peak stage (holds shape, starts sticking to sides of mixing bowl), it's done. Remove from mixing bowl and set aside.
Using stand mixer and paddle attachment on medium-high speed, mix cream cheese and remainder of powdered sugar until consistency is smooth.
Continuing to mix cream cheese icing, add in whipped cream and mix until fully incorporated.
