a stand or electric mixer (or balloon whisk).

a big bowl. For the powdered sugar, a glass or metal sifter is preferred.

a set of measuring spoons and cups or a kitchen scale



250 ml/one cup of cool whipped cream look note Powdered sugar, 1 1/4 cup/30 grams, see note 2

1 teaspoon (5 milliliters) of vanilla extract or bean, see note 3.



Refrigerate the bowl and whisk attachment of an electric mixer for around 20 minutes.

Cream should be added to the cold bowl. Add the sugar powder by sifting.

Add vanilla essence, or if using vanilla bean, the following: With the tip of a sharp knife, split the vanilla bean lengthwise. Use the flat side of the knife to scrape the seeds while holding the pod open. Discard the pod and add the seeds to the cream.

To begin beating, switch on the low setting on your stand or electric mixer.

Increase the speed to a medium setting as the cream starts to thicken, then beat until the cream reaches the desired consistency.


It takes roughly 5–6 minutes of medium-speed mixing to reach soft peaks. As soon as the beaters are lifted, the peaks collapse. With this consistency, you can top beverages, traditional English scones, pancakes, or waffles.

It takes around 8 minutes of medium-speed hammering to reach stiff peaks. As soon as the beaters are lifted, stiff or hard peaks stand straight up. This consistency is ideal for piping. Because of its strong consistency and elegant piping, it keeps its shape for several hours when applied to cakes.

Please be aware that the length of time it takes the cream to reach the correct consistency is only an estimate and will vary depending on the force and speed of your beaters.


Reaching soft peaks requires around 5–6 minutes of medium-speed mixing. The peaks fall as soon as the beaters are removed. You can use this consistency to top pancakes, waffles, classic English scones, and beverages.

Reaching steep peaks requires about 8 minutes of medium-speed hammering. When the beaters are removed, stiff or hard peaks immediately stand up. For piping, this consistency is perfect. When used on cakes, its robust consistency and tasteful piping allow it to hold its shape for several hours.

Please understand that the time it takes the cream to achieve the right consistency is merely a rough estimate and will vary depending on the strength and speed of your beaters.

Use chilled whipping cream that has just been pulled out of the fridge. Cold cream whips up more quickly and has a lighter, fluffier texture.

There is no longer any grainy texture in the whipped cream because the light, fine sugar has blended beautifully with it. Additionally, a small amount of maize starch, a superb stabilizer, is present in powdered sugar. Because of this, the whipped cream is guaranteed to maintain its stiff texture for hours after it has been beaten.

The cream's distinctive flavor comes from either vanilla bean or vanilla extract. Use vanilla bean seeds or liquid vanilla extract as flavoring. Both have incredible flavor, but vanilla bean seeds have a more nuanced and potent flavor because they are the purest form of vanilla.
