- 1 lb (450 g) Cream cheese
- 1 lb (450 g) Powdered sugar
- 2 tbsp Whipping cream
- 2 tbsp Cornstarch
- ½ tsp Lemon juice
- 2 tbsp Vanilla
- ½ tsp Salt
Add room temperature cream cheese, lemon juice, cornstarch, salt, and whipping cream in the bowl of a stand mixer
Whip on medium speed for about a minute until light and fluffy.
Add powdered sugar one cup at a time until you've used all of the powdered sugar.
Lastly, add the vanilla.
Continue to mix on medium-high for two more minutes until light and fluffy similar to a whipped cream consistency
(If too soft add a little more powder sugar.) (If too stiff add a tbsp or more of whipping cream to lighten it up.)
The more you whip, the lighter this frosting becomes. However, do not. over-whip, as it can breakdown and curdle.
