Ultimate Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting

Amy Alusa Recipe

By Amy Alusa amyalulsa

Makes about 3-4 cups
Prep Time:

I got this recipe on Pinterest; but when I tried it, it was every bit as good as reported, and better! I and my family absolutely love this one. This recipe makes a generous amount, so if you only want to frost 12 cupcakes or 1 layer cake...you for sure will want to 1/2 the recipe. I originally got the recipe from:


I am glad I can share it with all of you!


(16oz) cream cheese, room temperature
1 1/2 c
powdered sugar
1 tsp
vanilla extract (i use pure not imitation)
1 c
heavy whipping cream (the higher the fat content the better! she used 40% ultra!?! i just used heaviest i could find

Directions Step-By-Step

Beat the cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth and fluffy. In a separate bowl, beat the heavy cream to nearly stiff peaks, then add the whipped cream into the cheese mixture and quickly and briefly beat to combine. Do not over beat.

I also use salted butter. If the recipe calls for salt, I will sometimes decrease it just a tad to compensate...if a lot is called for.

I have tried a couple whipped cream cheese frostings but now will try this one. It's difference is double the amount of cream cheese! If I might give a tip: always add at least an 1/8 tsp of salt to any frosting recipe that does not have salted butter in it. It just balances out the flavors so it doesn't have that sweet-flat taste. Thanks for sharing Amy!

Yes, it is for piping some out on cupcakes and just a nice cake top, but for really detailed piping and decorating, you may want to add about 2 Tbs. of vanilla pudding. I have heard from several sources that doing that, makes the frosting stiff enough to work beautifully, and really retain it's shape.
Let us know how it works!!!!
