Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting – The good news? I *might* have dropped one, and it was fine. Because it’s a stable whipped cream shape, no one was the wiser. LOL.
From there, it’s pretty easy to move the flowers from the cookie sheet to your frosted cake, or in my case, a pie. The offset spatula is the key to this. Simply run it below the flower shape, and it will then come off the wax paper. Use the spatula to then place it where you’d like it to go.
And here is the finalized look!
Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting
- three TBSP cold water
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- two 1/2 tsp gelatin knox brand, this is one pouch
- two cups heavy whipping cream
- one tsp vanilla feel free to sub other extracts.
- Before whipping your cream, place your beaters or mixer attachment, and your mixing bowl into a freezer for about 15 minutes to allow them to cool.
- In a microwave safe bowl, sprinkle the gelatin over the cold water. Stir, and allow to “bloom”. This takes about 5 minutes.
- Microwave the gelatin mixture for 10 seconds. It will become a liquid versus the solid shape it had been (looks like ugly jello!). Stir to make sure everything is dissolved.
- In your chilled mixing bowl, begin whipping the cream on a low speed. Add in the powdered sugar, followed by the vanilla. Move to a higher speed and watch for good peaks to begin to form.
- Once the whipping cream is starting to peak, switch back to a lower speed and slowly drizzle the melted liquid gelatin mixture in. Once it’s in, switch back to a higher speed and continue to beat until it’s reached stiff peaks.
- Place in piping bags and pipe shapes, or ice your cake. You can also place in the fridge for a few hours before using, but you may have to thaw a few minutes to get it to be more manageable.
- Once you’ve iced your item, place in a fridge to hold it’s shape, or serve immediately.
