Whipped Cream Frosting

Recipe just covers a 9 in. two layer cake or will top two pies.

For each 2 cups of heavy cream, gradually add 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar and 1/2 tsp. vanilla.Spread over cake and refrigerate.

Variations: add 1 T. instant coffee or 1 T. cocoa (this will thicken like a mousse...yummy)
                    add liquors of choice, but the cream will be less stable and need to be served the same day e.g. Kirsch or Kahlua

Note: The more butterfat in the cream, the better it will hold up.
           Cakes frosted with whipped cream freeze well.
