This is just a good recipe to have on hand. Cool-whip is great, but there is nothing like home-made whipped cream. It just makes your dessert extra decadent and your guests will think you went to a bakery, so when you’re looking to show off just “whip” out this handy recipe. Did I mention it is also super easy?
Place 1 quart of heavy whipping cream, 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract in a large bowl. Using the whisk attachment, whip on low speed until the mixture starts to thicken up, then increase speed to medium and whip until the mixture comes together forming soft peaks. This process takes a good 10 minutes so patience is the key.
- 2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 1/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
But don’t leave it alone because you could curdle it and if that happens it will look like nasty chunks of butter. Once you get the desired consistency, pipe onto cupcakes using a 1M star tip.
