This recipe differs from most in that it’s lighter and not as sweet. Often so much powdered sugar is added to give extra body to a frosting. In this recipe however, the majority of the frosting structure comes from whipping the cream. The result is a frosting that doesn’t detract from whatever it’s adorning.
