This light, fluffy strawberry and cream cheese frosting is the perfect finishing tough for our Confetti Flower Cake.
1 (8-oz.) pkg. cream cheese, softened
2/3 cup granulated sugar, divided
2/3 cup finely chopped fresh strawberries
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
How to Make It
Beat cream cheese and 1/3 cup of the sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add strawberries, and beat just until blended.
In a separate bowl, beat heavy cream and vanilla with an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment on medium speed until foamy. Increase speed to medium-high, and gradually add remaining 1/3 cup sugar, beating until stiff peaks form.
Fold half of heavy cream mixture into cream cheese mixture just until incorporated. Gently fold in remaining heavy cream mixture. Use immediately.
