How to Make Whipping Cream

Have you ever had to choose between Heavy Cream and Whipping Cream? Don't worry; you're not alone! These two dairy darlings might seem similar, but they have unique qualities that can make a big difference in your cooking adventures.

Let’s get started!


Use Heavy Cream when you need thick, stable whipped cream for decorating cakes or pies, making ice cream, or creating luxurious sauces and soups.


Use Whipping Cream when you want a lighter whipped cream for topping hot cocoa, coffee, or fruit, or when you need a cream that won’t overwhelm the texture of a delicate dessert.


Here's how to make homemade whipping cream. In a large bowl, pour in the chilled heavy cream.


Using an electric mixer or a whisk, beat the cream until it starts to thicken. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla extract (if using) to the cream.


Continue to whip the mixture until it forms soft peaks. Be careful not to over-beat, as it can become grainy and eventually turn into butter.
