If you’re looking for a whipped cream recipe that does not go flat on you for two days, then this is the one! This is stable enough to pipe on top of cupcakes and pies, and it holds its shape like gold. After doing research, I learned there are three secret ingredients that will stabilize your whipped cream without it going flat: Knox Gelatine, Corn Starch, and Whip It. My preferred method is to use Knox Gelatin. This is my go-to whipped cream recipe for life! There is no looking back now.
I have made whipped cream using my stand mixer, a handheld mixer, and a Kitchen Aid 5 Speed Hand Blender. Though all three methods work in similar ways, I favor the results with the Kitchen Aid 5 Speed Hand Blender. I was able to measure directly in the cup it comes in, as it has measurements printed on the side. I also love that I feel like I have more control over mixing the ingredients. A cool fact about the hand blender is that you can use it to puree soup as well. That’s just one of the many cool features it offers.

The Best Whipped Cream Recipe
- 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin
- 1 Tablespoon cold water
- 1 cup cold heavy whipping cream
- 5 Tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste
Add unflavored gelatin to a small bowl of cold water. Allow at least 1 minute to bloom (meaning the water has absorbed with the gelatin). Microwave gelatin mixture for 30 seconds until it is a water-like consistency. Set aside for 2 minutes while you prepare your whipped cream.
Add heavy whipping cream into your mixing bowl on medium speed and beat your cream until peaks form. Add your granulated sugar and continue mixing. Add your gelatin mixture and vanilla bean extract until incorporated. Now get ready to impress your friends with whipped cream that will not go flat on you!
