This is the best whipped cream frosting recipe on CC in my opinion. I havn't tasted Giants whipped topping so I can't help you out there. Caution to the wind when decorating with a whipped cream icing, they don't hold decorations on the side very well. I found this out the hard way.

Whipped Cream Frosting

Serves/Yields: 1 frosting for a 2 layer cake. (12 servings)
Prep. Time: 1 Hour 30 Minutes
Cook Time: 25 Minutes
Category: Frostings
Difficulty: easy


A heavenly coating for any cake. Whipped cream is gently folded into sweetened cream cheese.


1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup white sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups heavy cream


1 In a large bowl, beat cream cheese, sugar salt and vanilla until smooth. In a small bowl, whip the heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Fold into the cream cheese mixture.

Yeah, It's always a good idea to try something before the big day. You'll also get to see if the taste is similar.

CocoaBlondie: How long does this icing stand up? Will it hold up as well as Butter Cream? Does it need to stay in the refrigerator? I noticed the cream cheese and thought it might.
