The frosting looks and tastes like light fluffy clouds. It really will become your favorite frosting and you will be wondering where it’s been all your life.
It’s been in heaven.
Sometimes (oftentimes) the best things come by mistake. Like the way I frosted these cupcakes. I was just messing around in Leigh Anne’s kitchen one day and before I knew it I looked at the cupcake in my hand, and it looked like a cloud. Who would have thought?
HOW TO MAKE CLOUD CUPCAKES
8ozcream cheesecold (right from the fridge) and don’t use low-fat
1pintheavy whipping creamcold (right from the fridge)
1. Using a whisk attachment on your stand mixer, beat cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth. Scrape down the bowl as needed.
2. With the mixer on slow, add vanilla and heavy whipping cream and beat until stiff peaks form.
3. Pipe onto vanilla (or rainbow!) cupcakes with a large circle tip starting in the center and movie outward to create little “mounds.” Feel free to practice on the bottom of a cup until you like how they look. To keep with my St. Patrick’s theme, I put a little gold coin in some of the clouds.
