    Combine powdered sugar and butter in a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add cocoa powder, vanilla, and salt; mix for 30 seconds. Add cream 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing after each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
