YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY! Thank you! A few of you have mentioned lumps in the frosting. What works for me, I warm my mixing bowl with hot water first. It is just enough warmth to "melt?" the cream cheese. Then use a chilled bowl for the Whipped cream, whip till very stiff. Maybe why some are having trouble with it being runny. Fold together and it is absolutely scrumptious!! Awesome flavor! So much lighter than a Cream Cheese frosting. It won't over power the flavor of your cake. Had many requests. MAY I ADD A HINT TO ALL WHO HAVE HAD TROUBLE WITH THIS RECIPE BEING RUNNY! IF USING THE SAME BOWL AND BEATERS YOU MUST WHIP THE CREAM FIRST. IF THERE IS EVEN A HINT OF THE CREAM CHEESE (OILY SUBSTANCE) IN THE BOWL OR ON THE BEATERS YOU WILL NOT GET YOUR CREAM TO "WHIP" UP TO A STIFF CONSISTENCY, WHICH MEANS THE FROSTING WILL BE TOO RUNNY. YOU MUST TRY AGAIN. VERY DELICIOUS!

Hopefully I'm covering most of the debates about the frosting in this single review. Use 1 3/4 cups of POWDERED SUGAR instead of regular sugar for frosting! It firms it up enough to be a better frosting. If your cake is sweet, you might consider using less powdered sugar (cutting back on the sugar in the frosting makes for an excellent mix with a sweet cake). If you do decide to use less sugar, add 1/8 – 1/4 teaspoon of cornstarch to firm. Be sure to beat heavy whipping cream in an entirely separate bowl, and then beat together with cream cheese mixture. Definitely, freeze beaters and bowl before whipping the cream and deep chill frosting afterwards. Overall, this is the best cream cheese frosting/filling I've ever had!

This was a real, real disappointment. There is NO WAY you can pipe this frosting...it is soooooooo soft and runny. I am an part time cake decorator so I am very familiar with piping frosting. I placed my bowl and beaters in the freezer and chilled my whipped cream. It was still too soft to really ice anything other than a flat sheet cake. After reading the reviews I noted that some people said use only 1 cup of whipped cream and not 1 ½ cups. Possibly that may have made it a little thicker. But my point is...the recipe as written does not work. Another reviewer suggested that this frosting can only be used on a flat, sheet type cake and I totally agree. I used this to frost a 10 inch angel food cake and it just started to drip/slide down the sides. It did not hold up well.....and that was after refrigerating and trying to chill/thicken it up. I would never make this again....stick will regular, buttercream creamcheese frosting. If you enjoy carrot cake with traditional cream cheese frosting you will not enjoy this fluffy, runny, whipped cream version.
