Add gelatine to cream

to make whip cream stay firm I believe you add gelatine .How would you dissolve the gelatine Would you had boiling water and then add to the cream before whipping it

heathermay1, we very rarely have cream so I certainly haven't ever added gelatine to retain whipped cream's firmness; however if I did want to do so I think I would (and hopefully this would work) swell/soften the gelatine in a little cold cream, then gently warm the swelled/softened gelatine, just until the gelatine was dissolved and if necessary allow it to cool a little before adding it to the being-whipped cream. Personally I think it would be best to avoid adding any water.

Hope that helps.:-))

Adding a couple of tsp of vanilla instant pudding is a good way to keep it firm. You can't taste it really.

Snap, Smurf! I do this if I don't want the cream to soften or start to split.
Works well and you can't taste it.

I just add a little gelatin powder as is and the cream is firm without being too heavily whipped and stays in place!

If you can get piping gel, that works very well

I used to add gelatin to cream when I whipped it when I was a kid but haven't done so in over 20 years. if you do want to add it just sprinkle the powder in when whipping the cream, no need to dissolve.

I have used a teaspoon of Vanilla Instant Pudding for years and then a lady in the supermarket told me honey works just the same. I have not tried the honey yet.

Ha ha maybe I got that hint from you?

Chef_standard, Jun 13, 3:36 pm

is it runny honey or cream honey

Chef_heathermay1, Jun 13, 4:05 pm

Or raw honey?

Chef_buzzy110, Jun 13, 4:34 pm

or clover honey - so you cannot taste it?
Would be tasting terribly of honey and nothing else if you used manuka.
