Everyone loves whip cream, so why not make it yourself? Drawing whip cream can be both fun and rewarding. After all, when done correctly, it can look extremely delicious! With a few simple tips, you can learn how to draw whip cream and be the envy of all your friends.
First and foremost, never skimp on the ingredients. Invest in a high-quality cream, preferably with a higher fat content, and make the choice between fresh or fresh whipped cream. With fresh cream, use an electric hand-mixer to whisk the cream until it is light and fluffy. Fresh whipped cream is even easier to work with and it keeps better in hot weather.
For perfect whip cream, it’s important to get the consistency just right. If it’s too thick it won’t draw easily, and if it’s too thin it won’t hold its shape. Start with a thicker consistency, adding a little liquid such as vanilla extract if needed to thin it. Whip it until soft peaks form and it can then be used for a variety of drawings.
It’s also essential that the surface is cool so that the whipped cream has something to adhere to. Place a chilled part of the dessert onto a cold plate before drawing. An ice-cold surface also helps to reduce the effects of heat on the cream since it melts as it warms up.
Now comes the fun part! When using a pastry bag, make sure to snip off the tip and use a properly-sized tip for the design you wish to create. Then pipe decorative circles, stars or shapes of your imagination. For faster results, you can also spoon the cream into a swirl or ridge on top of a larger dessert. Finally, using a cake-decorating comb, make intricate designs by dragging it through a mound of cream.
For maximum effect, accentuate your creations with decorative drips. Start by adding a small dab of cream to your design and then use a dental tool or toothpick to drag it around the edges. If your whip cream is already starting to melt, add more cream and chill it for a few minutes for a firmer hold.
Surprise family and friends with delectable whip cream designs by topping cakes, pies, cupcakes and other goodies. Create a majestic dessert topped with rose swirls and filigree scrollwork. Or get creative and make a crop circle design or a fantasy landscape. Elaborate designs can take time and patience but they will be worth it once they’re finished!
For those beginning their whip cream journey, practice on scrap paper first or use edible food coloring and edible markers. You can learn to draw perfectly swirls or towers with few mistakes. Plus, it’s a great way to get the hang of whipping and piping without wasting the cream.
