Whipped Cream Cupcakes & Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting
Just got the mood to do this post after I postponed since early this month.
The combination of this cupcakes and frosting happened in different timing. Firstly, I had got this frosting in my fridge for 1 week and could not decide what should I bake which can combined with it. Due to I had leftover whipping cream and I felt like baking something which did not require butter or oil, immediately I was remember of this cupcake recipe .... using whipping cream to make cupcakes! Sounds great, right? Don't have to use butter or oil which was really my idea.
Honestly, I had never tried whipped butter cream or cream before since I had been started baking again last year. I was not sure it's my luck or not I can whip the cream easily myself not using any machines such as hand mixer or my lovely KA and the process of making the cupcakes was easy. It made me wonder that how the taste likes? But I did not taste the cupcake on the day I finished baking and frosting and my feeling told me that this cupcakes must be good! I put them in fridge and tasted it on the next day. The taste was nice not too sweet and went well with the whipped cream frosting.

But I used the frosting which was the leftover from the time I baked Red Velvet Cake with my friend at her house (we used the recipe from Joyofbaking) but with the modification as follows:
Whipping Cream 180 ml.
Cream Cheese 225 g.
Vanilla 1/2 tsp.
Icing sugar 1/2 cup
- Beat the cream cheese with icing sugar and vanilla till soften and smooth
- In another bowl, beat whipping cream till stiff peak and bring to fold in cream cheese
Tip: It's better to chill the frosting at least 1 hour before doing the frosting on cupcakes
