Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting

I don't bake. At least not from scratch. Usually. For Elise's birthday party I made box cupcakes and homemade frosting so they seemed homemade. I mean, I had to have a dessert that would hold up to the goodness of my pulled pork and homemade barbecue sauce and macaroni and cheese with truffle oil. I think this frosting did the trick. (I also added extra oil to the mix to make the cupcakes extra moist.) So anyway, I digress. The frosting turned out really yummy. Even our picky friends liked it. It does need to be refrigerated so I froze the cupcakes and then put them out into the cupcake stand frozen so they would stay cold.

Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting

1 block cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 c whipping cream
1 c powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract

In a small bowl cream the cream cheese with a mixer until...creamy. (Lots of cream going on here) Add in sugar and vanilla and combine. In a small bowl beat the whipping cream on high until peaks form. Gently fold in the whipped cream until incorporated. Keep refrigerated. This frosting is great on chocolate or white cake.
