Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting

Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting

Desserts Frostings and Icings White

This is a YUMMY whipped cream frosting that is very stable and does not melt at room temperature unlike many standard whipped cream frostings. It also makes a GREAT dip for fresh fruit -- not too sweet, just right! This recipe is GREAT for a stand mixer but will work with any good mixer.
