What is a finer accompaniment to a dessert than whipped cream! Whipped cream just adds a touch of magic—Pair it with some fresh berries, sticky chocolate brownie, fluffy chiffon cake, it works! But some of us struggle with whipping our cream. So, how to get the perfect whipped cream? We got the answers for you here!
There are plenty of people who have problems while whipping their cream. Due to that, they often leave that out as a final addition for their desserts. And it is such a huge shame because the whipped cream should be a star! While it is understandable that one may face challenges with whipping cream in the kitchen, we have made a list for you on how to get the perfect whipped cream! We are going to show you how you can get those light and airy peaks. Say goodbye to your whipped cream troubles!
1. Chill your cream
You are asking for major trouble if you use room temperature cream. Do not leave it sitting at room temperature for any length of time. It is the number one sin when it comes down to whipped cream and it is also a reason your whipped cream will not thicken! When the cream reaches above 10°C, its fat will not emulsify. You will not be able to maintain fluffy peaks that way because it cannot hold air particles! So, keep your cream chilled. The trick? Refrigerate your cream for at least a couple of hours before you have it whipped, and whip it good!
2. Chill your bowl
Do not underestimate the power of chilling your bowl. It is just as significant as using chilled cream. Think about it, when your chilled cream touches a warm or room temperature bowl, its fat will start losing its properties to emulsify. Do yourself a favor and refrigerate your bowl along with the cream, at least an hour will do the trick! Remember, do not waste any time and start whipping your cream once it is out of the refrigerator.
3. Use the right bowl
Aha! You did not see this one coming! We talked about chilling bowl, but did you know you could use the wrong bowl too? When we talk about bowl selection for whipping a cream in, it is preferrable to go for metal bowls or glass bowls. The reason we go for bowls made of glass or metal is because they do not give any chemical reaction to the cream that could potentially interfere with its whipping process. It is also best to avoid copper bowl altogether when you are whipping cream.
4. Use fresh cream
For impressive results, use fresh cream that you have! This is self-explanatory but you should never ever use expired cream for whipping or any other purpose. Naturally, using anything past its expiry date is not recommended at the best of times, but when it comes to dairy, the answer is an ultimate no. Always stick to products that are in good condition. If you can, buy cream on the same day you intend to whip it, it keeps the freshness.
We told you to use fresh creams, make sure you are also using the best creams! The creams from Rich Products Malaysia should be on your list.

4. Do not add too much or too little sweetener
Having too much or too little sweeter makes a stark difference to how your whipped cream will taste. Nobody wants to taste a whipped cream that is too sweet, and how your whipped cream tastes can have the potential to make or break your dish. Keep into consideration that whipped cream is mostly used to accompany desserts that could already be sweet. So, you must be careful with the amount of sweetener you use. Yet, using completely unsweetened whipped cream gives you a bland and unsatisfying whipped cream.
Without fussing around, using these will give you satisfactory results. For a great vanilla taste, go for Rich’s Gold Label (it comes with a less sweet option too)! It is a fantastic option for those without a sweet tooth but still want to enjoy the taste of delicious whipped cream. You do not have to trouble yourself from further sweetening these creams!
Do not stress, enjoy the whipping process!
The whole point of doing anything is have fun with it. That said, do not rush the full process of whipping the cream. Whipping cream should not be too difficult once you get the hang of it. In fact, practice makes perfect. When you have practiced long and good enough, you can tell when your cream is whipped the way you want. Keeping that in mind, put your heart and soul into making the perfect whipped cream. Giving it the time and attention to it will show in the outcome! Long live the delicious whipped cream for our desserts!
