  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 4 tablespoons powder sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. I start by chilling the bowl I will be using. Just make sure what you are using is safe to be chilled, I use my metal bowl from my stand mixer and placed it in the fridge for 10 minutes. 

  2. Place all ingredients into the chilled bowl and whisk. I used my stand mixer and whisked until my cream has formed soft peaks. This could take 6-8 minutes. 

  3. Store in a container in the fridge or use right away for topping.
