Add the heavy cream very slowly as you mix on medium. Mix until all ingredients are combined and the frosting is smooth. (see video)
If you find the frosting too thick for your liking, add more heavy cream very little at a time.
Frost the cake once it is completely cooled. Refrigerate uncovered to allow the frosting to set. After about a half hour, cover. Keep refrigerated. (see video)
