AI'm still struggling to get my whipped cream icing stabilized. Does anyone have a good recipe? I've tried several different ways (adding pudding mix or gelatin) without much luck.

Thanks in advance.

AWhat's your problem in particular? Is it the process or the recipe itself?

Mainly just getting it stabilized enough to decorate with.

You can buy a commercial fresh whipped cream stabiliser - it comes as a white powder.

Thank you. Do you know if it changes the taste? That was one thing I didn't like about adding the pudding mix ( it worked but tasted a lot different).

AOoh what about piping gel to stabilize? Does that work? Does it change the taste?

piping gel works great--but depending on the definition of 'whipped cream icing' if you mean just sweetened, flavored real whipped cream then if it is whipped properly it will hold like glue--think about it--if cream is whipped too much it turns to butter right--so if you beat it just less than that it is very stable all by itself without any additions--if it is not beaten enough it weeps and is poo--


i used to use piping gel and while it works great it is not necessary if you're just doing the whipped cream--if ingredients other than flavor and sugar are added it's a different product/story


don't get whipped by your whipped cream -- (just being sillly) :grin:

but i mean this icing does not come out smoothy smooth--it is cloud like--pretty white but a fluffy surface--so if that's what you mean by stabilized--it's not gonna happen--by stabilized i mean not weepy--has great holding quality to it but of course it has to be kept well chilled

Here is the recipe that I use with piping gel. It works perfectly for covering cake and you can  pipe with it. I normally will put piping bag in freezer for about 5 minutes or longer then I pipe with it. If people are going to eat all of the cake in the same day you probably do not need the piping gel but I always put the piping gel just in case they do not eat it all and put it in refrigerator. I would rather be safe than sorry because I do not want whip cream to fall.

I use Dr. Oetker "Whip it"  stabilizer for whipping cream. 2 packs (10g)each, there is instructions on the back in english.  I buy it at I have used gelatin and didn`t like it.

Hi this is my first posting so please forgive me. I have had several customers asking for a "less sweet" icing and I want to try a whipped cream icing. But because I am a home baker, I cannot legally sell anything that MUST be kept chilled. Does this stabilized whip cream hold up well out of the refrigerator and, if so, for how many hours? My concern is for a graduation party in June if they have the party outdoors. Please let me know your opinion on this. :-) I've never made any kind of stabilized whip cream icing :-(

Doesn't look like I'll be able to get Rich's's not available at my local Sam's Club or from I live in the close to middle of nowhere so it might be hard to get my hands on it. Thanks though! Any other suggestions?

ask your local grocery store manager if he can get it--worth a try-- you might need to buy the case-- do you have a jewish community nearby? they use this
