Whipped Cream Frosting is probably one of my favorite kinds of frosting because it’s so light and delicious! I love adding in on top of sheet cakes or frosting naked cakes with it as those types of cake allow it to just be rustic, pillowy, and fluffy. So today I’m sharing my recipe for Whipped Cream Frosting.
You can do so much with this frosting, so get creative this summer! Use it to top sheet cakes and stack naked cakes as I mentioned above. And you can also use it to make cake jars, top cupcakes, sandwich soft and chewy cookie pies, top tarts and more. Get the recipe below for my Whipped Cream Frosting.
Tips for Making the Best Whipped Cream Frosting
• Use high quality organic heavy whipping cream. My favorite is Organic Valley and it’s what we use daily at Dessert’D.
• What is the difference between ultra-pasteurized or pasteurized? The main difference here is the temperature the cream was heated to before packaging. What that means for you is the ultra-pasteurized will last longer than just pasteurized. So, if you are purchasing cream and won’t use it right away, definitely opt for the ultra-pasteurized. If you’re going to use it that day, then no worries you can get either one. They both will still whip up the same delicious and fluffy Whipped Cream Frosting.
• Whipped Cream Frosting is similar to making homemade whipped cream, so if you’ve done that before then you got this in the bag! It’s a very easy frosting to make and it whips up in just a few minutes.
• Make sure to serve this immediately or store whatever you made with it in the fridge as the cream needs to be refrigerated.
