How to Make Whipped Cream – Important Tips

  1. When making whipped cream it’s best to use a metal bowl that’s been chilled for a little while. Using a warm or room temperature bowl will make make it difficult for the whipped cream to puff up and hold its shape.
  2. For best results use a full fat cream labeled “Heavy Cream” or “Whipping Cream”. The fat content of the cream should ideally be around 30-35%. Using cream with a lower fat content just won’t yield the results you’re looking for.
  3. When your whipped cream starts to form soft peaks, slow down and stop as soon as it’s just right. If your whipped cream is over mixed it will deflate, so watch carefully.
  4. If you accidentally over whipped or deflated your cream, you can fix it by adding a little more cream from the carton and into the bowl. Whip for about 10 seconds then check to see if it’s right. Be careful not to over whip it again!  🙂

And there you have it! I hope you found these tips useful in making your own homemade whipped cream!
