Here is a video on how to make our The Best Whipped Cream Frosting, you’ll find step by step pictures and the recipe below! Enjoy!

Pour the whipping cream into a chilled mixing bowl

For best results, put the bowl (stainless steel is the best) you will be using to make the frosting in freezer for at least an hour prior to making the The Best Whipped Cream Frosting.  Add the whipping cream to the cold bowl.  

Add the Powdered Sugar to the Whipping Cream

Using a mixer, whip on high until soft peaks form.  Then add the powdered sugar. Continue to mix on high.

Add Pudding Mix

Just before you get to stiff peaks add the White Chocolate Pudding mix.  Lower to a slow speed and continue to mix the whipping cream and the pudding. 

(A note about the pudding:  We used White Chocolate Pudding Mix so the frosting would stay white and whipped cream-like but you can also use Vanilla Pudding or Cheesecake Pudding.). Different brands have different sized “small” boxes. If it is in the range of 3.4 oz. to 3.9 oz. you will be fine)

Beat the Whipped Cream Frosting

When the frosting starts to come together, stop the mixer and scrape down the sides.  Also check to make sure the pudding hasn’t clumped on the bottom.

The Best Whipped Cream Frosting

Fold the mixture a couple of times with a spoon.  Turn the mixer back on for just a few revolutions.  DO NOT OVER MIX or you will end up with butter!  If the frosting gets too thick add a little bit of milk 1 teaspoon at a time. 

The Best Whipped Cream Frosting

This is what your Whipped Cream Frosting should look like, light and fluffy.  When you first taste it might be a little grainy from the pudding mix. That will disappear as the pudding dissolve fully.

How much of The Best Whipped Cream Frosting will you need?

How much frosting will you need?  That always depends on how thick or thin you apply the frosting or how much decorating you do but here are a couple of guidelines. Our recipe should make enough The Best Whipped Cream Frosting to cover a 9″ x 13″ sheet cake or a two-layer 8″ cake.  If you are making cupcakes, you should be able to frost 24 cupcakes if you apply the frosting with a knife.  If you swirl on the frosting with a pastry bag like we have done here, you should be able to frost 15-18 cupcakes depending on the size of the swirl.
