Hi Bold Bakers!

One of my favorite things about the holidays is all the fun you can have with getting creative! I am a sucker for all the fun ways to celebrate from sugar cookies in fun shapes, to wreaths, lights and decorations. While I don’t usually like anything too cutsie or froo-froo in my baking, I do think this is the one time of year to Boldly Bake, using those pretty cookie cutters and colored sprinkles. Thus this little idea for Frozen Whipped Cream shapes!

My Frozen Whipped Cream decorations could not be easier to make, or more effective. I love the little things I can do to take everyday things and make them festive, no pressure, no fuss. I think there is something really great about a simple mug of my Best-Ever Hot Chocolate topped with these beautiful frozen whipped cream decorations.

Frozen Whipped Cream is really as easy as whipping cream and a bit of liquor or Vanilla Extract then freezing them on a flat tray overnight. When guests come around, or family is in town, all you have to do is get out your favorite little candy cane (or star, or Christmas tree) cookie cutter and cut out your whipped cream garnishes.

You’d be surprised how well these work, they do not just melt away, they really hold their shape. Talk about a trick of the trade, this recipe just shows that a simple little thing like whipped cream can be turned into something really special, making your holiday entertaining so much more relaxed!

When I make whipped cream I usually add some powdered sugar to give it a little sweetness as I find that it blends better and don’t need so much in this recipe.Will using the powdered sugar in this recipe change the outcome,or does it have to have the granulated sugar to help stabilize it so it can be be cut into shapes as the powdered sugar blends better.

Hi Gemma, I did this and I used 300ml on “1½ cups (12floz/30ml) cold heavy whipping cream” because I assumed that’s what it was suposed to be, right?
Btw nice recipie, very original and practical, it’s good for coffee too, sometimes I want a bit of cream and I didn’t wanna open a whole thing just to use a little, this solves my problem, thank you!

Hi Gemma, if using vanilla, how much do you use? Is it still 2 tablespoons – seems a lot? Also could I substitute brandy or baileys in this?
