When I had my first child, I tried to limit his processed food. Therefore, I decided to make his first birthday cake complete with homemade icing. I searched the internet for ideas and this delicious concoction graced his first birthday cake! It can also be used whipped cream, too. Can you believe it is easy, too?!?!
Easy whipped cream and icing
- 1 cup organic heavy cream (for icing or whipping cream for whipped cream. I use Organic whipping cream, as that is the only organic version at my local store)
- 2 TBSP coconut sugar (regular sugar can be used if desired)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract or ground vanilla bean
Beat cream in a chilled bowl until it thickens. Add other ingredients and beat until soft peaks form. This must be refrigerated. This recipe may need to be doubled depending on the size of your cake.
If I am being honest (and lazy), I have just thrown everything in my blender to make this and it tasted great, too (although it wasn’t as pretty).
When looking at the picture, please keep in mind I took the picture outside in sunny Florida. This recipe is a healthier alternative to traditional whipped cream and icing and is so delicious! My whole family loves it, which doesn’t happen often. I hope you enjoy it, too.
