As a child my friend’s mother always had fresh whipped cream for her hot cocoa. To me this was the ultimate indulgence. When I finally realized how simple this is to master I’ve never gone back to canned, and I promise once you taste this, you won’t either.
Fresh whipped cream can top off any dessert, a stack of hotcakes or your cafe latte. But it can also be folded into pudding, tiramisu or used to ice a cake. Simply achieved with only two ingredients this whipped topping is easily had in just moments. However, you can alter this base flavor by adding your extract or alcohol of choice (photo credit via thepinkpeppercorn on Flickr).
