I'm new here, barely found out how to start this thread O_o

 

Anyway, i LOVE baking/making cakes/cupcakes. I want to use whipped cream for my decorations as much as i can but i just can't get it to work for me:( For the majority of the most basic piping i know, it works. BUT I WANT TO MAKE ROSES! & can't. it just flattens out looks more like a flower... :(

I put bowl and mixer things in freezer before whipping, i get the gelatin ready, i saw in a video it supposed to look clear, so i get it that way. Start whippin up the heavy whipping cream, add vanilla, then icing sugar, then the liquid gelatin. Maybeeee i'm whipping too long? because the cream gets clumpy then doesnt look so "smooth".... But so it doesn't hold. IDK isn't it supposed to look smooth like the one that comes out of the can? you know for <3pumpkin pie<3 ? :)

ANY one with ANY suggestions?????

PLEASE and thank you SO much in advance^-^

Whipped cream doesn't work for roses.  You really need a stiff icing recipe.  One that contains shortening (for stability), butter (for taste), powdered sugar and perhaps some meringue powder.

I have done it adding my gelatin DRY, just like 2 tsp of it slowly while whipping.  The roses weren't as stiff and tall as regular icing, but I was surprised at how well it worked.  I did it on top of a pumpkin pie (obviously frosting doesn't go there!) and kept it in the fridge until just serving.  Good luck!

BETTERCream makes beautiful roses.    I buy it pre-whipped because the prewhipped version is not available in our stores.   No need to gelatin to BetterCream.
