Whipped cream help please
12

Ilmiopinguino · 02/07/2022 15:01

I need the mumsnet hive mind. Last year I found a really simple recipe to stabilise unsweetened whipped cream. Then cleverly failed to make a note of it. I'm trying to make a strawberry sponge for my daughter's birthday and it has to be the same as last year. So, I need to stabilise whipped cream but no added sugar, no gelatin and no cream cheese. I think last year I used either cream of tartar or corn starch but now all the recipes have added sugar too. Please help, I'm drowning in recipes and you tube videos and my daughter keeps popping in to ask if I've found it yet....

This recipe says just leave out the sugar if you want it less sweet thetoughcookie.com/2016/07/27/super-smooth-whipped-cream-frosting-step-by-step/ .

Thanks CrabbyCat. Definitely not what I did last time but worth an experiment. Though that rubbery pudding looks nasty... Fingers crossed

Cornflour works, or you can use milk powder

Do you know what ratio of cornflour to cream?

Thanks, though again it uses sugar and I wonder if it would work without.

Why does it have to be the same and what's wrong with sugar in a cake?

Oh there will be sugar in the cake, but she doesn't like sweetened whipped cream. And I guess last years cake was so good she just wants the same again. Which seems fair enough.

Going to ask a dumb question ... why does it need to be stabilised?

I've made victoria sandwich etc with whipped cream without stabilising?
