Whether you’re planning a big family gathering or an evening in with a few friends, it’s always a great idea to have dessert on the menu. Whether that means cookies, cakes or pies, they can only be made tastier when topped with delectable whipped cream. For budget-minded parents, learning how to make whipped cream yourself at home can save you money and trips to the store, as well as being a fun activity to do with the kids. It only takes a few minutes, and you might have everything you need to start making whipped cream already on hand.
The best part of learning how to make whipped cream is knowing just how often you’ll need it. This versatile topping is everywhere, adding a sweet finishing touch to pies, sundaes, brownies, cupcakes, waffles, hot chocolate, pudding, cheesecakes, and so much more. Heck, try it on pasta or a burger if you want, we’re not here to judge. Whatever the recipe, if it could stand to be a little sweeter, whipped cream is ready for service.
That’s all you need! For your basic recipe, that’s really all you need for making whipped cream. However, at your own discretion, you can sub sweeteners like honey and maple syrup in for the sugar and you may want to add vanilla, cinnamon or other flavorings – even liquor for a boozier whipped cream.
And that’s it! That’s how easy it is to make whipped cream. The whole thing should be done in a few minutes. Store unused portions in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
