Cream Cheese Frosting with Whipping Cream

There are a lot of choices when it comes to frostings.  But I personally find that most are too sweet.  However my favorite is cream cheese frosting with whipping cream, and that’s because it’s a light and fluffy frosting, with just a hint of sugariness.

Generally, when I bake, I substitute Truvia for regular sugar, and I’ve been doing that for almost 10 years.  Furthermore, I don’t notice that my desserts taste any differently than they did before making the switch.  And no one else has either.

Although, regarding cream cheese frosting with whipping cream, I only add a couple of tablespoons of Truvia, so there’s only the slightest trace of sweetness.  But that’s why I think it’s perfect.
