Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting

This is the lightest cream cheese frosting on my site; it's fluffy and aerated from the addition of whipped cream. It's still amazingly stable though - it pipes amazingly and gives you the smoothest finish on cakes.

Because it does not contain any butter, it's a great frosting for those who want the taste of cream cheese but don't want something overly heavy or sweet to top their cakes.

To avoid thinning out the cream cheese, which happens when you overmix, most of this process will be done by hand. If you like, you can watch my video down below to see how I do it. The whipped cream cheese frosting portion of this video starts at around 3 minutes in.

Keep in mind that this is definitely cream cheese forward frosting, so if you prefer a lighter frosting without the tanginess, I have other whipped cream frostings that may be better suited to your palate.


Hi! I'm Adriana.

I built this site for the curious home baker. I'm a huge science + tech nerd; you'll feel right at home if you like exploring and experimenting in the kitchen too.

Here you can build cakes with my Cakeculator and find recipes to accompany the videos from YouTube, Tiktok, and Instagram.

I have lots of things to share... I hope you have fun around here!
