Whipped Cream Frosting on Chocolate Cake

Easy Whipped Cream Frosting

Whipped Cream Frosting is ideal for rich desserts since it is not too sweet. You know those one-bite frostings that you scrape off the cake? You’re not going to be scraping this off.

It adds just the right amount of sweetness, especially when paired with dark chocolate or semi-sweet chocolate. The delicate sweetness complements angel food and citrus desserts such as lemon.

If buttercream is sometimes too heavy for you, whipped cream frosting is the answer. The main difference between the two is that whipped cream is light and airy, but buttercream has a thick richness from the butter foundation.

When using whipped cream frosting, keep the frosting cold by storing it in the refrigerator. You may expect the cake to last for around 2-3 days. After that, it will begin to dry and your frosting will most likely leak.

I also recommend sticking to one- or two-layer cakes. It is a softer icing and does not form a crust so using it for that wedding cake tower would not be recommended.

Whipped cream frosting is perfect on chocolate cakes, such an easy dessert that no one turns down. Hershey’s Chocolate Cake is the most adaptable and simple one-bowl chocolate cake recipe I’ve ever tried.

This Chocolate Crazy Cake is one of the simplest cakes you’ll ever make, and it doesn’t even need any butter or eggs.

If you haven’t tasted the amazing Chocolate Quinoa Cake yet, don’t pass it up. There isn’t a hint of “quinoa” taste to the cake and it’s also the easiest gluten-free cake you can make without any special ingredients required.

Frosting Recipes

Frosting, in my opinion, is the condiment of the dessert world. A cake would be incomplete without it. I like making frostings that enhance and complement the taste of a dish. I have too many favorites to ever choose just one.

TIP: Your frosting’s best buddy is an offset spatula.

Creamy, Not-Too-Sweet, Absolutely Perfect Fluffy Chocolate Frosting is truly the best chocolate frosting I’ve ever tasted. This Salted Caramel Frosting is also delicious on chocolate cupcakes.

Fresh berries are one of my favorite ways to add flavor, and these frostings are brimming with them. I crammed almost a full pound of fresh berries into this fresh Strawberry Frosting. Fresh Blueberry Frosting, a light and creamy frosting whipped into fluffy blueberry deliciousness, is another option.
