Stabilized Whipped Cream

Stabilized Whipped Cream

Why do good cooks buy frozen whipped topping, that’s not even real food, when even beginners can make creamy, exquisite, Stabilized Whipped Cream?

911…after posting the recipe for Key Lime Pie  I got an email from a reader.  She complained that her whipped cream looked beautiful in the kitchen, but with warmer weather, it melted and looked soupy very quickly when serving a dessert.

Here’s a cheery basic that you will enjoy year round!

Stabilized Whipped Cream

Stabilized Whipped Cream | cheerykitchen.com
Years ago at a Wilton cake decorating class our instructor taught us the secret of making fluffy whipped cream that can hold up in the fridge for a week.

Decorators pipe it on cakes, but I love to top pies, tarts, sundaes, trifles or whatever!

It holds up to heat much better than regular whipped cream and best of all, for entertaining purposes it can be made way ahead.

This recipe yields 2 cups.

In a small saucepan, combine gelatin and cold water; let stand until thick.  Place over low heat, stirring constantly, just until the gelatin dissolves.  Remove from heat; cool (Do not allow it to set, you don’t want little chunks of gelatin in your cream. Whip the cream with a mixer, with the powdered sugar, until slightly thick.  While slowly beating, add the gelatin to the whipping cream.  Whip at high until stiff. At this point you may add a flavoring extract.

    I am not much of a cook or baker in the kitchen but my husband is. He enjoys creating all kinds of things but I do not think he has done whipped cream. I will def share with him.

    Gelatine! A trick would never have known! I hate that and happens to me too. I can make the most perfect (well for me!) desserts and 10 minutes later on the table they are a puddle >.<

    That is a super cool way to keep the Whip Cream…WHIPPED! I’ve never actually included whip cream into any of my desserts. Maybe I should start.

    I bet it’s the gelatine that makes this whipped cream stabilized. I haven’t tried creating whipped cream for toppings with gelatin but sure this recipe is fascinating. I can’t wait to give it a try!
