Useful Tips To Make Whipped Cream Dessert

  • Preparation: You can make whipped cream a couple hours before the scheduled time of the party or event. First, you must prepare and place a bowl inside the refrigerator with a strainer set on top.
  • Freezer Cold: Although this is not important, it’s best to start with a bowl, cream and ice cold beaters to get better results. All you have to do is place them inside the freezer in advance for about 10 minutes.
  • Flavored Whipped Cream: You can use a flavor of your choice, whether its rum, cocoa, Amaretto, cinnamon, Gran Marnier or coffee, rather than the usual vanilla. Just ensure that you are adding the right amount to jazz up the taste. Note that flavors such as vanilla, hazelnut and lemon will combine well with whipped cream. If you are making a dessert that is really sweet such as a rich chocolate cake, then using less sugar with the other whipped cream ingredients will give better tasting treats.
