Equipment

  • 1 Electric Mixer handheld or stand mixer
  • 1 Rubber Spatula or Mixing Spoon

Ingredients

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream cold from the fridge
  • 16 ounces cream cheese block softened at room temperature
  • 2 cups confectioners sugar (260 grams)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Place heavy cream in a bowl of a stand mixer or handheld electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Beat for 4-8 minutes or until medium-stiff peaks form. Be careful not to overheat otherwise it can turn into butter.
  • Transfer whipped cream to another bowl and set aside.
  • In the empty bowl of an electric mixer (from before) add the cream cheese and sift the confectioner sugar on top of it. Beat with the paddle attachment for 3-5 minutes until thick and smooth.
  • Carefully add in ¼ cup of the whipped cream at a time into the cream cheese mixture and mix on low speed or fold with a spatula, just until combined.
  • Mix in the vanilla for 10-20 seconds.
  • Refrigerate the filling for at least 30 minutes for best spreadable consistency for a cake.
