#Fearless Friday – Whipped cream

It seems so simple but fresh whipped cream, made at home, is something special.

I love recipes that are simple but offer a big wow factor. It’s ironic that something so simple is often not tried. I hope this gives you the incentive needed to make your own whipped cream.

Keyword: whipped cream


  • 16 ounces COLD Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1/4 cup Confectioners' Sugar
