This is probably one of the most simple things to make. Whipped cream. And wouldn’t you know it’s one of the best? This was my birthday cake this year. A simple homemade chocolate cake, with my favorite frosting, a lightly chocolate whipped cream. You don’t have to use the Instant ClearJel, but I tell ya, that stuff is pure magic. It keeps the whipped cream from getting loose or runny, and it has no flavor.
Next time you’re making a cake and want a quick and easy frosting, give this a try- or serve with some fresh strawberries, or whatever else you fancy!
CHOCOLATE WHIPPED CREAM
Recipe by My Stained Apron
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup cocoa powder
2 tsp instant ClearJel, optional
Whip cream slightly, then add remaining ingredients. Continue whipping to stiff peaks.
(In pictured cake I sprinkled some Heath Bits on top of the cake for texture.)
