How to Make Whipped Cream Recipe

This is the most luscious, creamy topping ever! Homemade Whipped Cream is far superior to anything store bought so here’s a how to make whipped cream recipe!

Do you Say Whip Cream or Whipped Cream?

I have kind of a silly question, do you say whip cream or whipped cream? I only asked because I’ve always said whipped cream but I’m hearing everyone say whip cream.

For example, I had a friend text me asking how to make Homemade Whip Cream.

So which is it?


What do you Need for Whipped Cream?

How to Whip Cream

Whipping cream into whipped cream is not a no-brainer like you might think. It’s actually the easiest thing you and your kids can learn how to do, but you can also accidentally turn it into butter.

Here’s how to whip cream.

  1. Start with a chilled glass bowl. This is not absolutely necessary but does make for a better whipped cream.
  2. Using a hand mixer or a standing mixer, beat the heavy whipping cream into soft peaks.
  3. Add the vanilla and powdered (or regular sugar) sugar and beat until stiff peaks form.


Should I Use Powdered Sugar or White Sugar in Whipped Cream?

It’s completely up to you which sugar you use, but I’m a personal fan of using powdered sugar as it’s so light and doesn’t weigh down the whipping cream.

How Much Sugar in Whipped Cream

I’m going to tell you my guidelines, but I absolutely never use a recipe in my own kitchen, I merely taste test with a little powdered sugar and add more to desired sweetness.

I always wondered how to make whipped cream taste as good as my grandmother's recipe. I loved tasting it when we visited on weekends and on the holidays as children growing up. I always said that I would master it and give my own kids a similar experience. There is nothing better than homemade cooking and freshly prepared desserts to look forward to. An amazing treat for well behaved little ones and a great incentive for parents to give out to get what they want from the youngsters who are not so keen to listen. A bit of home-cooked bribery and treat based blackmail is a successful formula that I am not ashamed to use frequently! is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to
