429 – Cream Cheese Frosting / كريمة الجبنة
280 grams (10 oz) plain cream cheese
280 grams (1 1/4 cups) whipping cream (or heavy cream)
30 grams (3 tablespoons) powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon orange blossom water (or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract)
1- In a large bowl, combine the heavy cream, powdered sugar, and orange blossom water. Mix.
2- Beat with a hand mixer until you get a thick cream texture with soft peaks.
3- In a separate bowl, soften the cream cheese using a rubber spatula.
4- Add 1/3 of the whipped cream to the softened cream cheese. Beat with the hand mixer for 30 seconds until both are well incorporated.
5- Add another 1/3 of the whipped cream to the mixture and continue beating.
6- Finally, add the last 1/3 of the whipped cream and use your spatula to fold the ingredients in a gentle circular movement, from top to bottom, so we keep the nice fluffy volume of the whipped mixture.
