Definitely a keeper, and that's from someone who bakes A LOT. Read the reviews. Used the 1-3/4 c powdered sugar. I also stabilized the whipped cream using the 1 tsp unflavored gelatin/tablespoon hot water method. I didn't want to be changing the recipe on first try, but I was making this for a birthday party and worried the frosting would be a flop without stabilizer. Interestingly, though the frosting was a bit soft going on the cake, a few hours later when I took the cake from the frig for the party, it had set up beautifully--it hadn't slumped at all. The cake looked great and the frosting tasted divine. I can't wait to try it on other cake recipes. I used this batch for hummingbird cake. Truly amazing flavor: not too sweet, not as rich/heavy as cream cheese frosting, just the right amount of lightly sweet/cheese balance. Fluffier than cream cheese frosting but more personality than whipped cream. Everyone loved it.
