Mine just go flat when I freeze them am I doing something wrong ?
Hi, Rebecca! Do they go flat when you try to pipe them or spoon them onto a sheet before freezing? If that’s the case then you might want to whip the cream to stiffer peaks. If it’s when it thaws, they do lose some of their structure once they thaw completely. It’s good enough for a casual family dinner, but if you wanted to do it for a celebration where looks matter, I would still make a fresh batch. I hope that helps.
Can you stabilize the whipped cream before freezing it to maintain
some structure? I stabilize whipped cream for pies!
Hi, Joan! Yes, I think that would work just fine! I think the whipped cream will freeze just fine no matter what stabilizer you use. Let us know how it works out!
what do you do to stabilize your whipped cream plz ?
My mom used to do that…and it was over fifty years ago!
We have a kids party coming up – these individual portions are a great idea, thanks.
By the way, this is also a good tip for freezing individual portions of ice cream for parties. I imagine that might come in handy with a roomful of wiggly, excited kids!
I feel Smarter now, thanks
Great idea! I’ve frozen it in ziplock plastic containers before but never thought about making individual portions. Gotta try that next time I have extra!
Also, WHAT kind of cake is that in the photo along with this article? Wow. I’d love to have you post the recipe for that little beauty. (You’d have to identify it as being the cake from this article, however). (8> Christmas is coming, you know, and I need some fresh new cake-y ideas cuz my family would rather have cake than pie this time of year.
D Smith – Ha! Confession time: It’s a leftover slice of black-and-white cheesecake from Whole Foods. ;-) Chocolate cheesecake on top and vanilla cheesecake on bottom. I’ll get to work on a homemade version!
Who ever has leftover whipped cream!!!! We eat it with a spoon if there’s any left!
Would you believe that this is a tip I learned in my middle school home economics class over 50 years ago? Probably the only tip that I still follow because it really works!
This is great tip! I have to pin it :) Happy Holidays
great tip, thank you!
WOW – never gave this a thought. I make whipped cream with a co2 whipper and am going to see how that freezes as a cooling bit in hot chocolate or a mocha would be grand.
And so happy to see you here, Emma C.!
Ohhh that is so smart! I’m all about zero waste, and hot chocolate just tastes sooo much better with some whipped cream! :)
