Creamy White Frosting

I originally found the recipe when searching for a recipe for a good red velvet cake. This recipe comes from the Waldorf Astoria Red Velvet Cake recipe. Both the cake and the frosting are awesome!

I discovered that this frosting goes great on other cakes, especially the Black Magic Cake. It's light and creamy, but not too sweet. It looks & tastes like whipped cream.
