Kittencal's Simply Perfect Whipped Cream

For the perfect whipped cream use only powdered sugar and make certain to freeze your beaters and bowl for about 15-20 minutes --- the addition of the cornstarch will create more body to the whipped cream and will hold up better.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place your beaters and bowl in the freezer for about 15-20 minutes.
  2. Pour the whipping cream into the cold bowl and beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until soft peaks form.
  3. Add in the powdered sugar, pinch cornstarch and vanilla (if using) continue beating until stiff peaks form (do not overbeat).

Kitten, I just made this simply perfect whipped cream and it does work perfectly. I followed the instructions and topped my peach pie with it. I will be using this whipped cream recipe again and again. I am just about to stop by Kittencal's Kitchen! It is always open on my computer. Thank you for another great recipe.

Very nice. I had no problems with it peaking quickly. I used it for my layers in French Tart's English North Country Strawberries and Cream Courting Cake. It was lovely. Thank you!!
