  • 1 cup cream cheese
  • 2 1/2 cups whipping cream
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • Place your mixing bowl and whisk attachment inside the refrigerator for an hour before whipping the whipped cream.
  • Afterward, in the bowl of your hand or stand mixer, beat the cream cheese at medium-low speed until smooth. After that, use a rubber spatula to scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl.
  • Next, turn the mixer at low speed. Then, gradually add the confectioners’ sugar, increase the speed to medium-high and mix for a minute until incorporated. So with that, please pause to scrape the bowl and its sides.
  • Then, add in the vanilla extract and turn the mixer to medium-high speed. Afterward, at low speed, carefully pour the heavy whipping cream into the bowl. Mix for a minute till it thickens; make sure not to over mix the cream because it will end up soupy.
  • Once the frosting takes shape, turn the mixer off. Then, do a quick whisk test by dunking the whisk attachment into the frosting and flipping it upside down. The frosting must appear at the midpoint of medium and stiff peaks; however, if it does not, continue mixing at medium-high speed with thirty seconds intervals.
  • Finally, please use the frosting immediately or place it in the fridge till ready to use.


If unsalted butter is unavailable, you may use salted butter instead; however, the taste will differ. Just add an extra tablespoon of confectioners’ sugar for it. Also, chilling your bowl and whisk attachment helps the frosting keeps its shape. In addition to that, always take time to scrape the corners of the bowl to incorporate the frosting properly. Moreover, it would be best to ensure that your gelatin is slightly cooled before mixing it in. Because of this, you do not want it to be exceedingly hot when you add it to the mixing bowl.
