Ingredients

How to make it

  • Combine gelatin with water in a small sauce pan.
  • Let stand until thick (a couple of minutes).
  • Over low heat, stir constantly until just dissolved.
  • Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly. (It should still be liquid).
  • Whip the cream, sugar, and vanilla until slightly thick in a large mixing bowl.
  • Turn the mixer on low and slowly add the gelatin liquid, then beat on high until the cream is thick.
  • Stabilized whipping cream will hold up for 4 to 5 days without separating. It can also be used to garnish anything that calls for whipped cream or non dairy whipped topping.
  • If you can, put it on before it sets up in the refigerator, if you plan to use it as a filling. If you stir it too many times after it sets up, it loses a little body.
  • If you are using it for the center of a cake, put it on the first layer and allow it to set up in the refigerator a bit before putting the top layer on.
  • If you are doing multi layers and the layers are thin, you should be okay to put the layers right on without allowing it to set up. It just depends on how thick the cream is. You don't want it to "squish" out the sides when putting layers of cake over it.
  • This beats the pants off of non dairy topping.
  • It also works great for frosting a cake too, just frost before it sets up.

    Thank you for this recipe. The sour cream variation you suggested worked very well to cut the sweetness of cheesecake. I made a 2nd 1/2 batch of the plain whipping cream with cocoa added and piped it on. It looked very nice and the leftovers help up well for several days in the fridge.

    thank you for this
    i was wondering is it okay to add melted white chocolate to this recipe or will it make the cream hard?

    If i use it as a filling between to layers would it be ok to add strawberries to it or would it break the cream down?

    Thank you! I used this as filling in a 1/2 sheet cake for a friend's baby shower. Perfect taste and texture, no watery ickiness, fantastic! BTW, I first tried a "simpler" version from another site where the gelatin is not heated and wound up w/little bits of gelatin floating in the whipped cream. Use this one instead!

    Thanks for your comment. Its so refreshing to hear that others, like yourself, are enlightened about how bad trans fats are, and that stuff in the tub is full of it. I agree with you about the dairy being better for you. At least your body can digest it and use it. Dairy is what our grandparents grew up on and they are living a long time! We should stick to the basics, not all the man made stuff. Hope you like the recipe :).

    This sounds great! I do not use the stuff in the tubs. That stuff is way worse for you than cream! I live in The Dairy State. I refuse to use Non Dairy Whipped Topping. Eckkkk!

    If you want you can do half cream and half sour cream for a different twist on the flavor. Hope you like it!
