  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese or use cream cheese
  • 4 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup cocoa powder I used dark cocoa powder
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 10 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • In a bowl, mix together the heavy whipping cream, cocoa powder and sugar.
  • Melt the butter and add the melted butter, whole milk and also vanilla essence to the heavy cream mixture in the bowl.
  • Mix the mixture well without any lumps, you can use an electric mixer or whisk if needed.
  • Now heat the contents in a saucepan stirring continuously and as the mixture begins to boil, transfer it from the hot stove.
  • Add the shredded cheese and flour, mix again using a whisk or mixer and take it back to the stove.
  • Heat the mixture in medium heat until the mixture starts to thicken as it begins to boil.
  • Transfer from the hot stove and wait for the mixture to cool down.
  • As it cools down, the mixture becomes more thick. You can filter the contents in case there is any lumps to obtain a smooth, creamy frosting.


Apply the frosting on the cake once the prepared frosting reaches room temperature and you can keep the cake refrigerated for a while so the frosting will set nicely. Refrigerate any leftover frosting, enjoy the frosted cake!
