No-Deflate Make-Ahead Whipped Cream

Cuisine Quick 'N Easy
Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Author Christina Lakey


  • 1 cup chilled heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup mascarpone may use more if desired
  • 3-6 tablespoons powdered sugar may use more if desired, depending on preference
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Place all ingredients in a medium mixing bowl.
  2. With a hand mixer, beat on medium to high speed until stiff peaks form.
  3. Store until later use. (Would make no more than a day ahead.)

Recipe Notes

Change it Up:
Substitute cream cheese for the mascarpone. However, you must whip the cream cheese and sugar separately from the whipped cream and then simply fold it in at the end. Not doing so may result in cream cheese lumps.
