How to make it

  • Combine gelatin and water. Let stand until thick.
  • Then place over low heat, stirring constantly, until gelatin dissolves, which takes about 3 minutes.
  • Whip cream with 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla, just until it is slightly thickened.
  • While beating slowly, gradually add gelatin to whipped cream mixture. Whip at high speed until stiff.
  • Cakes frosted with whipped cream should always be refrigerated.

    Thanks for the great tip on the whipping cream. I have a wonderful pineapple cake and it calls to be frosted with whipped cream. Never had any success but now maybe I will!
    Thanks again,
    Valerie

    Great idea. Now I don't have to go out & buy the packaged stabilizer that I've always wondered what was in it. Thanks & 5 forks

    I have actually used a recipe like this, on a from scratch Black Forest Cake. With the whole brandied cherries, even though they were toned down for work. If anyone is so much as thinking about trying this, I encourage you to do so. I can see blueberries dabbed on top this. I can also another Black Forest Cake. Yum….

    Hey, Mr. Joe...
    What is the "shelf life" of the whipped cream, in the fridge? I lost a batch ( made it for my dessert coffee ) in just 24 hours - typical separation issues.... AND, can this be frozen, somewhat like those ghastly homogenized messes in the dessert aisles ?
    Thanks for the post, I will be testing it soon. In the meantime, you got a fiver !

    P.S. Try my dessert coffee - it's decadent.
