Sturdy Whipped Cream Frosting
I just tried this recipe. It's delicious and I will definitely be eating it vs using it for frosting, but mine was too soft and not holding the peaks like in the video and other users' pictures. I am not for sure, but I think because I used Heavy Whipping Cream instead of Heavy Cream... I googled and it seems there is a big difference as Heavy Cream is better for piping. I think this should be confirmed and pointed out in the directions for us ambitious amateurs please!

Best Carolina BBQ Meat Sauce
Skipped the liquid smoke and used some corn starch to thicken it up a little.

Whipped Butternut Squash
This definitely inspired me- I took it a little further and added 1/2 c. canned carrots, a couple drops of truffle oil and didn't whip it up, but instead smashed it with a fork for a lumpier texture. I'm addicted!
