For this recipe, I was trying to create something that resembled and tasted like whip cream, but would hold better, like icing. The extra amount of cream really helps to achieve a light, fluffy icing without an overpowering sweet flavour.
- 3 cups icing sugar
- 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
- 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
Using Electric mixer fitted with whisk attachment (or handheld mixer), cream together butter and icing sugar until light and fluffy (about 3 min). Next, stir in whipping cream and whip for another 3 minutes or so.
