and that really is it!
Whip the whipping cream to form soft peaks. Then add in the powdered sugar.
Add in your vanilla extract and mix again until incorporated. But be careful not to whip it into butter!
I always take a taste test to see if the recipe I am making requires a whipped cream with a bit more sugar or not.
Once your friends and family have tried homemade whipped cream, they will never go back to store-bought again!
