Amy's notes for this recipe:
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!

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.

Thank you for sharing - this looks like it would be amazing on a carrot or red velvet cake :)

Would be great on any cake....add chocolate/cocoa and put it on a chocolate cake.

Thanks Amy for this great recipe. I just did something similar to my Cheesecake on Father's Day. I used heavy whipping cream instead of milk in my French Vanilla Topping for my Frangelico Marble Kissed Cheesecake Delight. Heavy whipping cream makes anything taste better, and I am sure this recipe is no exception.

I have seen this recipe before, but never tried it, but now I SIMPLY MUST because of your recommendation. Thanks so much for sharing. I just joined Pinterest, I don't even know how it works yet.

I joined this site in September of 2011, but never became active in it till the first part of the year in January during the last part of the month of 2012. So hopefully I will learn how it works. I am sure I will like it. Thanks for the recipe.

You will Rose Mary! There are so many wonderful things to see, to do, to try, and to start your own ideas and creativity flowing. You have a great deal of experience, so it will be even more fun for you, because you can look at a recipe or a picture and see what is good about it and what will not really work the best! Do check it out! I don't like other social networks besides JAP. I go on facebook about 2 times a month; and even then it is sometimes overwhelming for me. I just can't find the time to do both, and JAP is so much better. On Pinterest, I have a ton of pins tho' and it helps me find really good blogs that I can find great recipes, awesome DIY projects, plus a lot more! Now, I mostly follow up on pins I'
ve already posted, just doing a tiny bit every few days. I appreciate you sharing your food talents with us, your recipes, your excellent directions and fabulous pics!! It really is nice for US!!!
