frosting recipe

Total time

0 minutes


  • 1 cup cream cheese (I usually go for mascarpone, Philadelphia works very well too)
  • 1 & 1/2 cups sweet heavy cream - the sweet one is the easiest to beat and become nice and fluffy
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar - depending on how sweet you prefer your frosting


  1. To make the frosting just beat the heavy cream until soft peaks form.
  2. Add cream cheese and start beating again. Add the sugar slowly until you reach the desired consistency.
  3. Be careful not to over-beat the cream.
  4. Use the cream cheese frosting immediately to frosting cupcakes, or cakes.
  5. This recipe makes enough frosting for a 2 layer cake with a 20 cm base or 12 cupcakes.
