16ozfull fat cream cheese(450 g), room temperature
⅔cuppowdered sugar(80 g), sifted
2tsppowdered gelatine(7 g)
1cupwhipping cream, min 35% fat(250 ml), chilled
Add cream cheese into a bowl and whisk until fluffy, using a handheld mixer. Now add in powdered sugar and vanilla, continue mixing and then set aside.
In a small bowl, add powdered gelatine and water. Leave for 5 minutes for the gelatine to bloom. Then heat in microwave on low heat for a few seconds at a time, until the gelatine is fully dissolved.
Add around 1 tbsp, more or less, of cream cheese mixture into the gelatine bowl and mix well using a spoon. Now pour the mixture back into the cream cheese mixture and immediately mix everything together. Set aside.
In another bowl, whisk whipping cream until stiff peaks. Pour into cream cheese mixture and fold gently using a spatula until everything is well combined.
Chill in the fridge for 20 minutes for it to set a bit before frosting. Give it a mix before using. This frosting will set in time so don't leave it in the fridge for too long. Happy frosting!
This frosting will generously frost 2 layer cakes of 8 inch (20cm) or 9 inch (23cm).
Use spoon and level method for measuring powdered sugar (if using cup measurement).
