Whip Up to One Cup of Cream without Getting Out Your Mixer!

How to Make Whipped Cream by Hand


Here's what you'll need to whip cream by hand: Cold heavy cream sweetener salt flavoring Large cold bowl Large balloon whisk

For each 1/2 cup cream, start with 1-2 Tbsp sweetener, a small pinch of salt, and maybe 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract. Salt brings out the flavor of the cream, so don't leave it out.

Cream whips more slowly but into a more stable foam if everything is cold. Whisk back and forth rather than in a circles.  It's more efficient, especially at the beginning.

I whipped this cream by hand. I used cream, a little sugar, a pinch of salt, and vanilla  extract.

This is hand-whipped cream too. I used heavy cream, powdered sugar, apple pie spice, a pinch of salt, and a splash of vanilla extract.

Spoon your whipped cream on top  of your desserts, or pipe it on with a piping tip. Grab the full tutorial by clicking below, and see the next slide for more basic baking tutorials. Thank you!
