LOVE this frosting and I always get compliments on it. First time I made this it was perfect. Second time I over-beat and whipping cream became clumpy like bits of butter. Not sure how this happened as I was waiting for “stiff peaks” which never quite got there and then it started to get clumpy-and-liquidy, rather than smooth and frosting like. The last time, for her 3rd birthday, I turned off the beaters as soon as I saw the tracks forming and staying after passing through the beaters and it was perfect.
All of our parties have been out doors in August and the frosting has always held up well. This year, making a big cake for our huge birthday party was too much, as we have a new baby, so I ordered an all natural cake from Whole Foods Bakery. While it was delicious and beautiful, after a while, the Whipped Cream frosting started to fall apart and melt. This frosting always stays together. The first year, I added a little beat juice to a small portion for pink writing. Last year, I added homemade raspberry sauce for color and flavor. I had to be careful to not add too much, so it wouldn't liquify. It tasted great! Also piped it(with the raspberry and without) onto a Nilla wafer cookie and topped with a gummy bear(all natural) for birthday treats for kiddo's preschool class for a treat that's just the right size and doesn't result in a discarded, licked clean cupcake. This is my "Go-to" frosting and people always ask for the recipe!!!
