**Whipped Cream

“How to make basic whipped cream. For best results make sure whisk and bowl are ice cold.”


  • 1 cup heavy cream

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 tablespoon confectioners’ sugar


  1. In a large bowl, whip cream until stiff peaks are just about to form. Beat in vanilla and sugar until peaks form. Make sure not to over-beat, cream will then become lumpy and turn into butter
