I am new to baking. About four months ago I tried to make whipped cream frosting and it was a disaster....the frosting seperated when I put it on the cake. Since then I started frosting and decorating with crusting buttercream (which I love). I have to bake and frost a cake with whipped cream frosting by Saturday. Can someone please please give me a stablized whipped cream frosting?
Hey there! I don't have an exact recipe but I usually will dissolve a packet of gelatin in warm water (maybe 1/4 cup at most) and while the cream is whipping (after you've sweetened it, just as it's getting thick) slowly drizzle the completely dissolved gelatin in. This will make it a lot more stable and easy to pipe. Of course it still needs to be refrigerated but the chances of it breaking are a lot less. Good luck!
strain your gelatin after you bloom it for best results -- you could sub in piping gel if you have any and skip the blooming and straining -- however properly whipped wc is very stable -- if you whip it too much it turns to butter right? so whip it till just before it turns to butter -- will not weep -- and an idea for you to get the hang of it: whip some all the way to butter so you have an understanding of where you want to go with it --
best to you
Thanks so much for responding Honey6983 and K8memphis.
I just use 1 cup of whipping cream, 2 tablespoons of piping gel, 2 tablespoons of 10X sugar and a little bit of vanilla extract.
Normally, I triple the above.
I actually just used a stabilized whipped cream for the first time last week and it worked so well. I used the 'wilton' recipe but I tempered my gelatin with whipped cream before adding it to my cream - to temper the gelatin just add small amounts of whipped cream to it, stirring well between additions until it is the same temperature as your cream - then turn your beaters on and run a thin stream of the tempered gelatin into your bowl between the beater blades as you whip the cream.
It worked brilliantly on both my practice run and the batch I made for the cake. The batch that I made three days ago is still in the fridge as I made too much and it is holding up perfectly, I also piped basic decorations from the cream that held up perfectly as well :-)
