How To Series: Make Whipped Cream
Ahhh, whipped cream. That wonderfully fluffy, slightly sweet topping that goes so well with all of your favorite dessert treats. From ice cream, to pies, to hot chocolate, so many things are better with a small dollop of whipped cream. Many people love this dessert topper, yet it is not something we readily keep around. It is very easy to hop over to the grocery store and buy a can of Reddi Wip, but did you know it is just as simple to make it yourself?
When you are done whipping your cream into a frenzy, it should look something like this. add about a tablespoon of sugar – more or less to your taste – and whisk a little bit more, just enough to mix in the sugar.
When it forms stiff peaks and holds onto your whisk like this… you have made whipped cream. In only under ten minutes. Careful not to over mix it because you can churn it into butter. Not a huge problem because you can always use butter, but then you would have to start over. You can cover it and store it for up to a couple of days, but if it starts to separate just whip it up again.
