To me dessert is not about measuring and sifting. Its about smiling and being happy! So I am a no bake dessert kind of guy. Because I am a chiropractor by day and food blogger at night, I like to test all my recipes after work to make sure they are quick and easy.
3 Tips to For Easy Whipped Cream:
1. Place the bowl and whisk (or electric mixture bowl) in the freezer for 20 minutes before you use them. The colder the bowl the faster will form stiff creamy peaks.
2. Make sure that the heavy cream is cold cold cold! The cream being cold is a way to cut the time in half to whipped cream.
3. Taste the cream before you whip to see if needs more sugar or vanilla (if yes add before whip)! Once its whipped (whipping creates air). You want to be careful adding as it could deflate the whip cream.
