The Easiest Whipped Cream

This easy whipped cream is the perfect classic topping for ice cream sundaes, pies, waffles and more!

  • Total Time: 8 minutes
  • Yield: 12 servings 1x


Units Scale
  • 250 g heavy cream, cold
  • 55 g confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract


  1. If you have time, chill a balloon whisk and medium-sized bowl in a refrigerator for 10-20 minutes.  This step is not mandatory, but it helps.
  2. Place cold heavy cream and confectioner’s sugar into your medium-sized bowl.  Stir gently until the confectioner’s sugar is completely covered in heavy cream.
  3. Whisk at a medium pace with the ballon whisk for 2-4 minutes, or until very soft peaks form.  
  4. Add vanilla and continue whisking for another 30-45 seconds, or until stiff peaks form.  
  5. For a pipe-able whipped cream, continue whisking after stiff peaks form.  The mixture will look curdled, but it will be more stiff for piping.
  6. Enjoy!


As shown, the whipped cream has just reached stiff peaks.  If you want to pipe this whipped cream onto a cake or other dessert, you will need to continue whipping until the mixture looks curdled.
