Whipped Cream Frosting

Post by trax on Tue Jul 20, 2010 8:52 pm

I am making the hub a birthday cake. A white cake, four layers - filled with lemon pie filling. Frosting is whipped cream. How much corn starch should I add to stiffen the whipped cream up? I have not done that before.

Corn starch around here is not measured. But I have a high humidity- sometimes I need more, sometimes less- its just one of those things you have to add a bit and check... or at least for me it is... Sorry Sad I know thats not an answer, but its all I know Smile

I've never ever heard of adding cornstarch to whipped cream. Exclamation

I sweeten mine with confectioner's sugar. It has a bit of corn starch in it and it seems to be enough to stabilize it for me.

another trick is to soak some miniature marshmallows in the cream overnight before whipping- not sure of the amount, but the gelatin in them helps stabilize the cream when whipped- also sweetens it some.

The cake turned out beautiful. Beautiful from the heart, my husband loves it. It was so darn good, I have had it for breakfast and as a dessert. Thanks for all the suggestions, much appreciated.

Thank you and thank you for the birthday wishes. We are having a feast of bbq chicken with homemade teriyaki sauce, homemade potatoe salad, and of course, the cake!
