Carrot Cupcakes w/Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting

A Classic & One of My Family's Favorites

WHIPPED Cream Cheese Frosting is much lighter than the usual Cream Cheese Frosting. The usual stuff is cream cheese, powdered sugar and butter beaten together.

1.5 cups heavy (whipping) cream
1 8-ounce package of cream cheese
3/4 to 1 cup of white sugar

For the whipped frosting, the #1 step is to chill the bowl and the beater for 30 minutes. Then take the heavy cream and whip it until firm peaks are formed. Chill for 15 minutes, while you take on the next step. In a separate bowl mix one package of room temperature cream cheese with 3/4 cup white sugar (i used less; the standard recipe usually calls for 1 cup). When that's done, FOLD the whipped cream into the cream cheese. And chill for about 20 minutes.
