    Jo Jo Ba:

    Using gelatin to stabilize whipping cream can be a problem if not done properly. Some other methods that can be used to help stabilize the whipped cream are shown below:

    Add 2 teaspoons of nonfat dry milk to one cup of cream before whipping.

    Add 1 teaspoon of light corn syrup to one cup of cream before whipping.

    Use powdered sugar instead of granulated sugar when sweetening. Powdered sugar generally contains cornstarch which helps stabilize the whipped cream.

    Incorporate a melted marshmallow into the whipped cream towards the end of whipping.
    Use a commercial type stabilizer that binds the liquid parts of the cream, helping to stabilize it. One of the types available is Dr. Oetker's Whip It.

    The nonfat milk actually whips up? I've never had it do that for me without a stabilizer like gelatin! Will be trying this!
