Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting

Rating: Unrated
This is a YUMMY whipped cream frosting that is very stable and does not melt at room temperature unlike many standard whipped cream frostings. It also makes a GREAT dip for fresh fruit -- not too sweet, just right! This recipe is GREAT for a stand mixer but will work with any good mixer.

Ermine Icing

Originally known as ermine icing or butter roux icing, you can change up the flavor with any extract you want to try. I love adding peppermint extract for a pop of holiday flavor.
