Frozen Whipped Cream Cut-Outs Ingredients And Amounts (Yields: Varies with cutter size)
2 cups (480g) cold heavy cream
2 1/2 tbsp (31g) granulated sugar
2 tsp (8g) vanilla extract
Frozen Whipped Cream Cut-Outs Step-By-Step Directions
1) Remove the mixing bowl and whisk attachment from the freezer.
2) Pour the cold heavy cream into the bowl and whip on medium speed.
3) When the cream starts to thicken, sprinkle in the sugar and add the vanilla extract, continuing to beat until stiff peaks form.
4) Spoon the whipped cream onto the parchment/wax paper lined baking sheet and spread evenly with an angled spatula, or back of a spoon.
5) Place the baking sheet in the freezer for at least 3 hours or long enough for the whipped cream to harden.
6) Grab a cookie cutter of your choice and start cutting out some shapes. Make sure the cookie cutter goes all the way through the whipped cream to make it easier to remove.
Frozen Whipped Cream Cut-Outs Sweet Notes
You can add sprinkles or candy to the whipped cream when it's frozen. Just cut out the shape and sprinkle away. If the sprinkles don't stick well, add a dab of water to the shape, smear it a little with your finger, and then apply the sprinkles
If you're having difficulty removing the whipped cream cut-outs, place your hand underneath the parchment/wax paper and help pop the shape out. Make sure that the cookie cutter goes all the way through the frozen whipped cream when creating the shapes
We haven't tried making frozen shapes from store bought whipped cream, so we're not sure if the outcome would be the same
