I'm making a homemade whip cream and I think I added to much conf. sugar, it is really sweet. I don't have any more whipping cream, and I can't leave to get more.. Can I add some milk or 1/2 or 1/2 to cut down on the taste? Cleints are comming at my house at 11:00 to pick up cake,,,Please help

I don't b elieve you can add any other type of milk. It doesn't have enough fat and will probably just break down what you have. How much ps did you use?

I add a pinch of salt to my bc to cut a little of the sweetness. Would that work in whipped cream?

I think your best bet is to get more whipping cream, whip it without sugar and blend the two batches together. If you can't get more cream then I would just go with what you have. It can't taste too terrible can it? Good luck!

It's probably too late now, but your options are to add some salt &/or a bit of lemon juice. It's probably not as sweet as you think and will be just fine icon_smile.gif

wouldn't lemon juice make cream curdle? or does that rule change if you whip it first? I've never added that to whipped cream and you have peaked my interest.

Is it going to be served chilled, if it is it will taste less sweet, things taste sweeter at room temperature. If it is going to be servered chilled pop in in the freezer for 10mins and try it again you might get away with it.
