The recipe is for a sweetened, stabilized whipped cream without gelatin. It’s the perfect topping for cakes, cupcakes, pies, no-bake desserts and more. 


  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • ½ cup powdered sugar


  1. Place the mixing bowl and whisk attachment in the freezer for 5 to 10 minutes to chill.
  2. Prepare the whipped cream. Pour the  heavy cream into the chilled bowl and use an electric or stand mixer to beat the heavy cream on medium-high speed until the cream starts to thicken.
  3. Slowly add the powdered sugar and continue beating on high speed until stiff peaks form.


Whipped cream must stay refrigerate. Hot or humid climates are no good for whipped cream.
