I LOVE to use this whipped cream frosting recipe for many of my cakes and for a good reason. It’s not too sweet, it has great consistency and it adds moisture to any cake. This frosting doesn’t hold its shape as well as a buttercream would so it’s not ideal for piping decorations. It’s super easy to make but make sure to follow the instructions to get the best consistency!

  • Be careful not to over-mix the cream, otherwise it will separate.
  • Once you add everything to the whipped cream, mix for about 30 seconds to one minute, just until stiff peaks.
  • For this recipe, I use cream cheese. If you’re not a fan of cream cheese, just use mascarpone as a replacement!

I come back to this recipe time and time again, using it for my ‘Chocolate Spartak’, ‘Pistachio Pomegranate Cake’, ‘Chocolate Raspberry Cake Roll’, ‘Tiramisu Crepe Cake’ and many others. You’ll also see this recipe in my cake cookbook, The European Cake Cookbook.
