This turned out perfect! I love cream cheese frosting, but sometimes it can be a little heavy. This is the absolute best of both worlds... a light fluffy icing with the great cream cheese taste. After chilling in the fridge overnight I piped it on top of cupcakes and it didn't melt in the heat of the afternoon, even after sitting out for 3 hours during our birthday party. After reading a lot of the reviews I only used 1 c whipping cream and whipped it until very stiff in a chilled bowl and set aside in the fridge while i was mixing the cream cheese mixture. I used a separate bowl for the cream cheese mixture. Brought the cream cheese to room temp and substituted sugar with 1 3/4 powdered sugar, almond extract for vanilla (since we were using a strawberry cupcake, YUM!), and added the food coloring in. I mixed it very very well until it was super smooth the GENTLY folded in the whipped cream and chilled overnight. I loved it, but it must have been really good because half of the guests wanted the recipe : )
