MAKING PERFECT
WHIPPED CREAM
CREAM  The higher the fat content, the
better the whipped cream.  Use heavy
cream or heavy whipping cream because
they are at least 36% fat. Light cream is
18 to 30% fat and won't whip at all.

SUGAR  Confectioners' sugar has a bit
of cornstarch in it, which helps to
stabilize the whipped cream.  Don't use
granulated sugar because it doesn't
dissolve as well and can deflate the
foam.

WHIPPING  To test for soft peaks lift
your whisk or beaters ... the peak of
cream should curl over slightly in the
bowl.  For stiff peaks, keep beating until
you lift the beaters and the peak of
cream stands up erectly.  But be careful
because the longer you whip, the denser
and grainier the cream will become.  If
you go too far, fold in a splash of heavy
cream.  If it deflates, you've over whipped
and you'll have to start again with new
cream. Or you can keep whipping and it
will turn into butter.
