How It’s Made
This incredible raspberry whipped cream frosting is perfect for cakes and cupcakes and it’s so easy to make! Plus, a few tips to ensure the best results:
- The first step is preparing the raspberry sauce, which will add all the berry flavor. You can use fresh or frozen berries for this recipe. Combine the berries with sugar in a small saucepot, bring to a simmer and cook the berries until a jam forms. Next, I strain the seeds out using a fine mesh strainer, leaving behind a smooth berry sauce.
- Next, it’s time for the cheese and chocolate mixture. Using a combination of both cheese and white chocolate helps the frosting retain it’s shape better! I recommend melting the white chocolate in the microwave, then adding it immediately into the beaten mascarpone or cream cheese. Do not let the chocolate cool down! It will cause the cheese to clump if it’s cooled down! Mix in the berry sauce last.
- Once I have the cheese and chocolate mixture ready, it’s time to prepare the whipped cream. I like to switch to my stand mixer at this point and whisk the cream and confectioner’s sugar together until stiff peaks form.
- To the whisked cream, I add the berry and cheese mixture and whisk again for about a minute. I recommend stopping and scraping down the sides of the mixing bowl to ensure that all the ingredients get well combined!
Can I Omit the White Chocolate?
I get this question the most! Technically, yes, you can omit the white chocolate and the frosting will still turn out great. If you want to omit it because you don’t like the flavor of white chocolate, you don’t taste it too much in this recipe. If you are omitting the chocolate, I recommend adding the cooled berry sauce at the very end, once the cream and cheese have been combined together.
Holds Its Shape!
I love everything about this easy frosting recipe and I know you guys will too! Besides the mind-blowing flavor and texture, I love that this frosting is stabilized and pipes beautifully! Check out my video recipe to see how well it pipes! This berry whipped cream frosting is perfect for frosting your favorite cake or cupcakes. And, this frosting can even be made ahead of time!
You can make it a day or two ahead of time and keep it stored in the refrigerator, covered with plastic wrap. When you’re ready to fill, decorate or pipe the frosting, give it a quick 30-second whisk on high speed to get it fluffy again. Then simply transfer into a bag and you’re all set to go!
More Flavor Ideas!
In my video recipe, I used raspberries to make a raspberry frosting, but this recipe will work well with other berries, such as strawberries, blueberries and blackberries.
- Use the same recipe I used for the raspberries with the other berries. If desired, pulse the berries first in a blender or food processor, then reduce and strain.
- If you don’t have fresh berries available, berry preserves will also work well; you’ll need just 1/2 cup.
- This recipe will also work with dark chocolate! Follow the recipe as written, omit the raspberry/berry sauce and add dark chocolate instead of white chocolate.
