Strawberry Whipped Cream

I love me some strawberries. Especially strawberries with whipped cream on top.

Beautiful. Want to know what’s even more beautiful?

Strawberries in whipped cream. Whipped cream filled with strawberries. A match made in heaven. Yes, sir.

Strawberry Whipped Cream

Based on Cupcake Project

You’ll need:

  • 24 oz. heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 8 Tbs. pureed strawberries

The steps:

1. Process or blend about 8 large strawberries until they are reduced to a thick liquid.

2. Whip heavy cream until it looks like whipped cream. Stiff, but not too stiff.

3. Whip in sugar. Once combined, whip in strawberry puree.

Use immediately or store in fridge.

My recommendation: make a double layer chocolate cake (black bean cake, anyone?) and frost the cake between the layers, the top and sides. You’ll have just enough frosting left over for spatula licking. And spatula licking is the real reason we make cake, right? According to one very wise man, “It tastes like summer in my mouth.” Can’t ask for much more than that.

Top your pretty cake with the leftover strawberries. Store in the fridge until it’s dessert time!

I wanna know: What’s your favorite summer dessert?
