Mrs. Michael Ramey

"This recipe was created to go with my whole wheat chocolate chiffon cake. It contains no refined sugar and no egg. For white frosting, reduce the honey to 1/2 cup and omit the cocoa powder."

  1. Whip the cream cheese with an electric mixer until fluffy. Beat in the honey, cocoa powder, and vanilla extract.
  2. Beat the cream in a separate bowl until stiff peaks form. Lift your beater or whisk straight up: the cream should form a sharp peak that holds its shape. Gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture.

I made the chocolate version, and the flavor is reminiscent of my grandma's coffee cloud pie topping (which I love, so I am also in love with this topping!). This is so good that I licked the bo...

I made the white frosting and I loved it. It was light and loved that it didn't need any sugar. I put it over a pumpkin cake. Can't wait to make the chocolate frosting.

So glad to finally find a recipe that uses honey instead of sugar! I made it exactly according to the recipe and it was perfect. This is now my favorite frosting!

love it, sweet, light, airy. cream cheese and whipped cream make a great combo. need to have stiff peaks on cream. refrigerate to thicken.
