Red Velvet Naked Wedding Cake/The Best Cream Cheese Frosting Ever

Red Velvet Naked Wedding Cake

Red Velvet Naked Wedding Cake

My nephew Wyett married his fiance Kelli yesterday and Kelli asked if I would make the cake for them, I happily said yes and here it is.  She wanted a red velvet naked cake with cream cheese frosting.  You can find the recipe I used for the cake here and you can find the recipe for the frosting below.  My sister in law Laurie helped put the flowers on the cake and I think it came out really cute.  Congrats to Wyett and Kelli!

The Best Cream Cheese Frosting Ever

8 ounces cream cheese, softened

4 cups powdered sugar

2 – 4 tablespoons heavy whipping cream

1 teaspoon vanilla, I used clear vanilla to keep the frosting as white as possible

Beat all ingredients on low.  Start with 2 tablespoons whipping cream and add as much as needed to achieve desired frosting consistency.

recipe from Gluten Free Gigi

  1. Hi Penny, I have always used basically the same icing recipe without the whipped cream.It seems like the whipped cream would thin the icing too much. Do you add extra sugar to compensate? How do you keep the icing thick enough to not run? Thank you
