This instructable will demonstrate how to make homemade whipped cream topping using heavy whipping cream and powdered sugar. The whipped cream is a delicious and wholesome topping for a variety of desserts, beverages, etc. My favorite use of it is a topping on coffee or sliced strawberries! Once prepared, it doesn't last as long as CoolWhip but it also doesn't have any chemicals or preservatives.
heavy whipping cream (3/4 C)
powdered sugar (2 tablespoons, more or less to taste)
one glass jar (preferably with handle)
an electric hand blender with whisk attachment*
*This CAN be done by hand if you don't have an electric hand blender. You will need two people - one to hold the jar and the other to whip the cream. To whip the cream by hand use a regular whisk and twirl between your hands as though you were trying to light a fire. Done this way it takes approximately 5-8 minutes of consistent whipping to thicken the cream.
Step 1: Chill Cream.
Place the mug into the bowl and put ice cubes around the mug.
Pour approximately 3/4 of the heavy whipping cream into the mug. Feel free to let this sit for a few minutes to let the cream chill.
