Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting

This is a great alternative for cream cheese frosting.  It's a little lighter, fluffier and creamy.

1 8oz cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 c. powdered sugar
1/8 t. salt
1 t. vanilla
1 1/2 c. heavy whipping cream

* In large bowl combine cream cheese, sugar, salt and vanilla.  Beat until light and fluffy.  Set aside.  In another large bowl, beat whipped cream until stiff peaks form (it is much easier to do this with "heavy" whipping cream and make sure the peaks are not soft).  Fold whipped cream into cream cheese mixture and mix carefully but well, making sure not to deflate whipped cream.  Frost your dessert.
