There are a many things I love when it comes to dessert; homemade whipped cream is one of them. I often get a lot of questions about substituting Cool Whip for whipped cream, so I like to offer options.

My obsessions with flavored whipped cream started with Hot Chocolate Whipped Cream, which is one of my most pinned recipes on Pinterest. It’s thick like a mousse with a smooth milk chocolate flavor. With only two ingredients, I knew there were more flavor combinations I could do.

I had been dreaming about Cake Batter Whipped Cream for weeks. I love cake batter, but most cake batter flavored desserts are too sweet or over flavored for melt. I will lick my spatula clean any day, but when it comes to replicating a cake batter flavor, it can be difficult get away from that artificial taste.

This whipped cream couldn’t be any easier! All it takes is some heavy whipping cream and some dry vanilla cake mix plus a little bit of sprinkles. The cake mix acts as a thicker for the whipped cream. When it comes to the sprinkles, I prefer to use the larger “jimmy” type sprinkles as opposed to the nonpareils. The coating on the nonpareils melts very quickly and turns the whipped cream colored.

It makes a great toping for cakes, cupcakes, icebox cakes and more. Sometimes I use it to strawberries and then I basically ate the entire batch myself. I also featured this recipe is my cookbook.

    Hello!

    I have two questions before I make this yummy recipe:

    1. Do I have to add the sprinkles?
    2. Can I use airbrush food coloring on the whipped cream (I plan to top it on a cookie cake)?

    Thank you!

    1. Beyond Frosting

      Hi Stephanie- No you don’t have to use sprinkles.
      If you’d like to use food coloring of any kind it should work. I’m not specifically familiar with airbrush color vs other types of coloring system though. So you’ll have to try it first and see if it what you want.

    Used this as is for one of those trendy number cakes that are everywhere and loved the constancy of it.

    Making a fall themed version for dinner on Sunday and I’m going to try it with spice cake and some pureed pumpkin. Very excited!

    So umm… I just tried this for the first time. Came out slightly gritty at first…. then I made a 2nd batch (I’m making a large 3 layer “Gender Reveal” cake) but I sifted the dry cake mix first – and … perfect! OMG! I’m pretty sure THIS will be my new go-to!

    Can’t wait until I fill my Cream Puffs with this. I’ll see if my customers notice. Ha! Thx for the recipe!

      Hi Stephanie, it depends on how may layers and what you’re trying to achieve. I made it for an ice cream cake. But in general for whipped cream frosting cake, I try to use mascarpone or cream cheese whipped cream. I bet you could add mascarpone cheese to this and it would work just fine! Start with the mascarpone cheese and slowly add the heavy cream until the mascarpone turns to a liquid consistency. Then proceed to whip the heavy cream as normal.

    does the diffrent kind of cake mixes change the taste of the icing i mean i am sure it would but my question is on the ingredents u say vanilla cake mix and on the instructions it says yellow cake mix so i was curious have u tried both and if so witch one taste better also what if i was to add like a devils food cake instead would it make like a chocolate cake batter icing

      Hi Connie, if you used pudding mix it will turn into a very thick mousse, it would still be wipeable but because the pudding mix naturally solidified with moisture, the results would be different.

    1. Beyond Frosting

      Hi Mary, this should be treated like regular whipped cream. Personally, it’s 30 minutes or less. If it’s hot or humid then it will be much less time.

    1. Beyond Frosting

      Hi Michelle, I’ve never have that happen. You can try sifting it before adding it to the whipped cream. Brownie mix tends to be more gritty, but I haven’t see that happen with cake mix.

    1. Beyond Frosting

      Hi There, I am not sure what you mean. I only use heavy whipping cream to make homemade whipped cream. I have heard of a product called Dream Whip, but I have not used it and I don’t know much about it. I suppose you could use Cool Whip, but I don’t know how that would turn out.

    1. Beyond Frosting

      Hi Daniella, due to the sprinkles, you want to use a pretty open star tip. I would test the consistency before you finish, the more powder you add, the more stable it will be for piping. It also needs to be refrigerated!

    Hi Julianne, it was great to meet you at the BH&G Cooking Experience Reception tonight! Looking forward to all the fun things they have in store for us tomorrow! 🙂 This whipped cream looks amazing!

    1. Beyond Frosting

      Hi Holly! It was absolutely great to meet you!! I hope you had a good time!!! Keep in touch! Especially if you have blogging questions 🙂

    I just made this for my son’s cupcakes last night, and for one – I am the queen of not being able to make frosting, and this came together so easily. This may be my go-to base from here on out! Secondly, most of my family doesn’t like that super sugary bakery-style frosting, so this was perfect because it wasn’t too sweet and heavy. Very light. So thank you for this! You may have saved cupcakes from here on out for me 🙂

        I just bought some cake mixes that were pink lemonade and key lime flavored…this recipe might be the perfect way to use them!!

    1. Beyond Frosting

      Hi Clara- I don’t think so at all. The whipped cream is a little thicker than most, but the cake mix gets pretty well incorporated into the whipped cream.

  7. Master Chefette

    Omg!!! So yummy! Have never thought to do something like that! The possibilities are endless, need to make some of this pronto.

    1. beyondfrosting

      Hi! Thanks for stopping by! I can’t wait to make some more flavors this summer! Please let you know if you make it!

    1. beyondfrosting

      Hi Juli. I believe that this could be pipped onto cupcake. I would suggest to refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the whipped cream to set a little bit more. The cupcakes would need to be kept refrigerated after or better yet, eaten immediately!

        1. Beyond Frosting

          Hi Brittany, I haven’t tried it personally, but I don’t see why not! Actually I have been thinking about the Red Velvet one for awhile!
