Instructions of Whipped Cream Frosting

Place the cream cheese and powdered sugar in a large bowl and beat on medium speed until smooth.

Turn the mixer down to medium-low speed and pour the heavy cream down the side of the bowl in a very slow and steady stream, stopping every now and then to scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl with a silicone spatula.

When all the cream has been added, turn the mixer up to medium-high and whip until the frosting holds stiff peaks.
