Blackberry cream cupcakes

I made these cupcakes a few weeks ago when I still had some blackberries available. I used a basic vanilla cupcake, to part of the batter I added some squashed blackberries and tho others I added whole blackberries. For the frosting I just whipped some cream and added some mashed blackberries (very few).
Help: can anyone suggest a good cream cheese frosting recipe?

You can do like this:
225 g cream cheese room temperature
56 g butter softened
140 g powdered sugar
vanilla extract
Cream together the cheese and butter. Add the vanilla and slowly add the sugar.

Or, you can replace the butter with whipped cream. Just beat only the cheese, add the sugar and then mix in the cream.

Or:
200 g sugar
4 egg whites
335 g cream cheese
vanilla extract

Put the sugar and egg whites in a mixer bowl or another large heatproof bowl, fit the bowl over a plan of simmering water and whisk constantly, keeping the mixture over the heat, until it feels hot to the touch, about 3 minutes.
The sugar should be dissolved, and the mixture will look like shiny marshmallow cream.
Remove the bowl from the heat.
Working with the whisk attachment or with a hand mixer, beat the meringue on medium speed until it is cool, about 5 minutes.
Switch to the paddle attachment if you have one, and add the 1/3 of the cheese, beat until smooth and continue untill all the cheese is added.
Once all the cheese is in, beat in the frosting on medium-high speed until it is thick and very smooth, 6-10 minutes.

MMmm, those look so delish! I like the idea of icing cupcakes with whipped cream and fruit.

I use the cream cheese icing recipe posted toward the bottom of this post...

I had no idea how pretty mashed blackberries are in that frosting, that's a cool color!

Wish I could help you out with cream cheese frosting, but I'm just not a big fan.
