Even the kids can take part in making whipped cream. Evynn and Harrison are two of my five grandkids and they love to bake and decorate with me.  Occasionally they make appearances on my YouTube channel and are learning how to do tutorials. 

Stabilized Recipe

Please only use Heavy Cream (not heavy whipping cream) in these recipes. 

cupcakes with whipped cream icing

Makes 2 cups

2 Tablespoons of powdered (confectioners) sugar
1 teaspoon of cornstarch
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla

Refrigerate the mixing bowl and beater for at least 15 minutes.
In a small saucepan place powdered sugar and cornstarch and gradually stir in 1/4 cup of the cream. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, and simmer for just a few seconds (until the liquid is thickened). Scrape into a small bowl and cool to room temperature. Add vanilla.
Beat the remaining 3/4 cup of cream just until traces of beater marks begin to show distinctly.
Add the cornstarch mixture in a steady stream, beating constantly. Beat just until stiff peaks form when the beater is raised.
