Whatever you may be serving, a cake, pie sky-high ice cream sundae or pudding, all these deserts have a certain characteristic in common. All the desserts are made better a few dollops of low sugar homemade whipped cream. Or you prefer perhaps an easy trifle or no-bake icebox cake, one ingredient, the whipped cream here holds as a basic preparation ingredient.
Whichever the way, understanding how to prepare a sturdy, good whipped cream needs a lot of skills. It is important to understand all the essentials right from the required ingredients to use in preparing a whip that never deflates and what should be done with the leftovers before you embark on preparing your next dessert.
Most of us often like pumping up prepared whipped cream together with some amount of cream cheese when we need to pipe out much of whipped topping to cover a cake, or just for mini-tarts or cupcakes. The whipped cream gets some extra flavor and body after adding some tangy of this workhorse. This is among the means we have in place to stabilize whipped cream for great big events where it will sometimes be required to stay in a warm room for a while. Probably you will have the body of a sweeter icing, heavier, but some whipped cream lightness.
The cream cheese is what brings about the stability and stiffness; therefore, there is no need of adding any sugar that will at times make some kind of refreshing change in a topping right for a sweetly filled tart or an intense cake.
What Are The Ingredients Needed?
Like any other project you need to undertake, having all the required tools to complete it successfully is what to start with for the entire process to run smoothly. This is not different from preparing a stabilized whipped cream with cream cheese. Below are the required ingredients to yield around five cups
- 2 cups of whipping cream
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- Cream cheese 1 8-ounce package that has been softened for about an hour at room temperature
- Powdered sugar, 4 tablespoons quantity
How To Get Started With The Actual Making
- Begin your preparations by whipping together the sugar and cream cheese. This will soften the cream cheese and also breaks it a bit to come up with some little globules of the cream cheese in your whipped choice cream.
- Follow up to add a flavor in your whipped cream, for this case; you can consider either a heavy whipping cream that has more of fat or just your whipping cream. The end results of both will not show any difference but using a heavy whipping cream will make the entire whipping process short.
- Now it comes in a whip attachment with your stand-type mixer. Begin the process at a medium speed to avoid splashing out as badly as you turn to high speeds gradually. Ensure it doesn’t over whip by watching it keenly once it starts getting fluffy. Your product should look almost dry and get quite stiff. Once at this point, consider stopping there as continuous beating will make it separate into butter and buttermilk.
- Most people who try to prepare their whipped cream have reported that theirs doesn’t get as stiff as it is required. The reason for this might be that they are not whipping fast and hard as possible. This is actually what you expect to get if you use a hand-held electric mixer. For the whipping cream to be stiff as required, you should do it at least two cups at ago. It sometimes may be harder keeping the whip attachment fully immersed with lesser amounts making the entire whipping process sometimes not such easy.
- Other people prefer using an ounce per cup of whipping cream of cream cheese. The whipped cream is fully stabilized by the cream cheese and thereby providing it a little flavor and also holding its shape. There are more other people out there that use twice that cream in the preparations, and the results get yet stiffer as required. You can store this in a refrigerator, but it might sometimes get somehow a little soft, so when it is required, you should simply whip it for few minutes again to return to its state.
