Red Velvet Sheet Cake and Frosting

The Cake recipe cake from a wonderful Blog called "The Pioneer Woman" - you can click HERE for the recipe.  Take a look at her blog it is lots of fun with lots of good information!!  The frosting came from AllRecipes, and was submitted by Tom.  It is light with the taste of cream cheese that goes so well with so many cakes and cupcakes -  and here it is:

Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting

1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese (room temp)
1 C White Sugar
1/8 Teas Salt
1 teas Vanilla Extract
1 1/2 C Heavy Whipping Cream

1 - Cool bowl and beater in the freezer for at least a half hour before you make this - it will help.  Beat whipping cream in cold bowl until very stiff peaks form; set aside.
2 - In a large bowl combine cream cheese, sugar, salt and vanilla.  Beat until very smooth, then fold into the whipped cream. Spread over baked cake.

Keep iced cake in the refrigerator.
