Type of Dishdessert


  • 1 cup (250 ml) cold whipping (35%) cream 
  • 2 tbsp (25 ml) confectioner’s (icing) sugar 
  • ½ tsp (2 ml) vanilla 
  • Wire whip


  1. Freeze the mixer bowl and whip for 5 minutes. Place whipping cream in the chilled mixer bowl and attach the whip and mixer bowl to the mixer. Set to speed 6 and beat until cream begins to thicken. Increase to speed 8 and beat in sugar and vanilla until cream is your desired texture: either softly billowing or firm enough to pipe in a pastry bag. (It takes about 20 seconds to beat from soft to firm, so watch carefully.) Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 hours. Use as a garnish.
