Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting

This frosting is so good that I think it deserved its own post. I absolutely love cream cheese frosting. I think they are heavenly especially when combined with some sort of delectable cake or brownie.  Most cream cheese frosting are heavy and rich (not a bad thing if you ask me). This cream cheese frosting is light and airy, but yet still full of flavor. It would go perfectly on just about any cake. I used it on a delicious lemon cake that I will post in a couple of days.

Whipped Cream Cream Cheese Frosting

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese (at room temperature
1 1/4 cup white sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream

In a small bowl chilled beat whipping cream until very stiff peaks form (if you beat it any longer it will probably turn into butter); set in the fridge.
In a large bowl combine cream cheese, sugar, salt and vanilla. Beat until smooth, then fold in whipped cream. Frost cake as desired.

*Note: This is a very soft light frosting. I was able to frost a 2 layer cake with it and pipe with it a small amount, but this is not an ideal frosting for piping, but it is an ideal frosting for eating so do with it as you please. This is also a delectable fruit dip.
