Hello everyone! A few days back I had made a very delicious yet very simple cake as my Anniversary gift to my ever doting husband who has a huge sweet tooth. That cake was a sugar free chocolate cake which was shaped as a heart and had a silky soft whipped cream cheese frosting on it. Today, I am going to share the recipe of this frosting with all of you interested. I should also add that this particular recipe makes me super proud and happy. Why, you ask? Well, that is because I made this recipe on my own. I did not refer to anyone else’s recipe, neither did I follow any of my own earlier recipes. I just searched through my fridge and did what turned out to be this amazing frosting!
So, in all honesty, I would like to confess that I did not really plan to make that cake. It was a split second decision. I knew I wanted to bake a chocolate cake but I hadn’t decided on what kind of frosting I would make for the cake.
Now, as some of you may know that I am following the KETO diet and thanks to that, I always have heavy whipping cream in my fridge. So when it came to deciding on what kind of frosting I should make, I knew that I had to use the whipping cream.
If any of you has made plain whipped cream frosting ever, you would know that it is usually good to be used as a filling for a cake but not when you plan to use a piping bag for frosting with it. I don’t really prefer whipped cream for frosting my cakes with a piping bag. Firstly, there is the risk of it melting under hot weather and secondly, if you are using a piping bag, the frosting doesnt come out smooth. There may be air bubbles in whatever pattern you try to make with it. Heck! I don’t even know how exactly to explain. I hope at least some of you got my point.
So the other option for me was to make a buttercream frosting but personally I find it too sweet sometimes. Also, more importantly, it is not my favorite thing! If I make the cake, I make it the way i like it best! Isn’t that the whole idea?!
So fortunately, I had a brick of cream cheese also lying in the fridge which I had bought to make keto friendly cheesecake or fat bombs. Luckily, I hadn’t been able to get around to that yet. So I had that staring at me from my fridge.
Eventually I decided to use whipping cream, cream cheese and as little powdered sugar as possible!
I used some of this and some of that, slowly till the consistency of the frosting looked just right to me. But when I tasted it, my mind was blown! It was sooo creamy and delicious. At the same time, it was airy and light because of the whipped cream. I simply love this whipped cream cheese frosting!
Without further ado, let’s get onto the recipe.
Well, clearly my piping skills could do a little more work. I will get there soon!! Please pardon the bad piping skills.
I hope you like the recipe. I insist that you give this one a try. You will love it just like we did!
till next time,
