Some desserts just aren’t complete without a dollop of whipped cream on top – whether it’s a slice of pie or a bowl of fresh berries.
While many of us turn to cans and tubs for a whipped topping, there’s nothing quite like making it from scratch for fresh flavor and homegrown fluffiness. If a DIY version sounds intimidating, think again. Here’s how you can make whipped cream at home.
If you’re not going to use the whipped cream right away, add a stabilizer like cornstarch, gelatin or cream cheese. Each ingredient builds a unique texture that holds its own depending on how long it will be out and in what temperature.
