Hi ladies, please guide me : How to let piped fresh cream on cake hold its shape longer ( about 3 hours) in a room. Would like to bake a cake using fresh cream frosting for a birthday party but am worried about the cream melting. Please please any suggestion.

Tks Gina, I used Phoon Huat's Non diary whipping cream but still it cannot hold its shape for so long. Do U think it will help if I add some gelatine powder or instant jelly powder into the cream.

I added some icing sugar during the whipping process. That helps alot. As icing sugar has cornstarch in it.

if you see the cakes I did for my family members that has fresh cream..usually that has icing sugar added.

I usually put 2 tbsp of icing sugar to 250ml of whipping cream.

the brand I use is from Tops. So far, only managed to get it from Sun Lik. 1 litre for $5 only. Cheap and very good. I like it because the cream is snow white in colour and holds very well.

Gina,

I would like to check with u. If we buy 1L, and we only use 250ml, how long can we keep for the balance in the fridge? Or can we put the balance in the refrigerator?

Thanks.

Hi Mo2,

If it is a non-dairy whip cream, you can freeze it for future use.

For dairy whip cream. you have to use up within 3 days. Can use it to make bread e.g whipping cream bread or milk bread.

Cheers.

Hi,

I know nuts about cake deco, but would like to try to bake a birthday cake for my girl next month. Just one question, can I add colouring to the whipped cream to give it some colours instead of it being white only?

You can add colours but use gel ones as this will not thin the whipped cream.

no need to add stabiliser if you are using non-dairy whip cream.

I have read somewhere to stabilized whipped cream icing so it is pipeable on cake is to add gelatin. Does this really work? Will it change the taste of the cream?

i read in somebody's blog that she add meringue powder, and she even pipe roses with her whipped cream. I emailed the blog owner but she did not reply.

Anyone tried that and know how much longer can it hold?

I tried icing sugar before. It holds better and longer, but not very much longer.
