Whipped Vanilla Bean Cream Cheese Frosting or Filling

Loving this recipe!!! Which I adapted from HERE. I use it for filling for cakes (it is lighter than the regular cream cheese frosting which I use on the outside of cake) and to top my Best Ever Whole Wheat Cinnamon Roll Recipe

The Recipe 
16 oz cream cheese, room temperature
2 to 4 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 teaspoons of vanilla bean paste
1 cup heavy cream, cold. higher the fat content, the better 

The Directions 
Step 1: Beat the cheese, sugar, vanilla and vanilla bean paste until smooth and fluffy.

Step 2: In a separate bowl, beat the heavy cream to nearly stiff peaks.

Step 3: Then add the whipped cream into the cheese mixture and quickly and briefly beat to combine. Do not over beat.
Chocolate cake with the whipped filling. I think I added a bit too much for me.
