Can you substatute cool whip for whipping cream?
No. While many people use Cool Whip as a substitute for sweetened whipped cream, Cool Whip is a non-dairy product made from oil. Whipping cream is a heavy (high-fat) cream that you'll probably find near the milk in your supermarket. Some recipes call for it as-is; other times, you'll whip it (by hand or with an electric mixer) until it is thick and fluffy to make whipped cream.
No, you need at least around 30% cream (milkfat), to be able to whip it. This usually means you need at least a light whipping cream, although most will prefer heavy whipping cream, as it's more reliable and stable. It is possible for certain light creams (not whipping cream) to have enough fat to whip, but they usually fall in at around 20% fat.
The only difference in "whipping cream" and "whipped cream" is that the "whipping cream" is referring to Heavy Cream, and "whipped cream" is the Heavy Cream that is whisked, incorporating air, and sugar, creating the whipped topping for desserts. If you're referring to something like "Cool Whip" and the aerosol whipped topping, then the key difference is in the dairy products it is made from. Typically, Heavy Cream is not used in those products, as…
No. Light cream typically has a lower fat content than whipping cream (though a higher content than half and half). Fat content can vary, but typically light cream is at about 20-30% fat, whereas heavy (whipping) cream is at 30-36%. Because of the lower proportion of fat to liquid, light cream does not whip. You can whip it all day and it will basically just look like foamy milk.
It depends on the food being prepared. If the whipping cream needs to be whipped, half-and-half will not do, because it does not whip up in the same way as whipping cream. It may be substituted when cream is called for in cake batter, scones or in a sauce, for example. But the resulting product will not be as rich with half-and-half as a substitute.
If a cake is frosted and filled with commercial frosting it can be kept at room temperature, preferably under a cake keeper, for 3-4 days. Refrigerating a filled cake is a necessity when the filling includes dairy products such as whipping cream, pudding made with milk, cream cheese, and even non-dairy topping (Cool Whip). Dairy products will spoil, and Cool Whip will separate.
Varieties of cream are defined by how much milk fat they contain. - Heavy cream and heavy whipping cream are different names for essentially the same thing: cream that is 36% or more milk fat, and which doubles in volume when whipped. - Light whipping cream is between 30 and 36% milk fat, and can also be whipped. - Light cream, table cream, coffee cream or single cream are names for cream that is around…
35% milk-fat cream is not normally used for whipping. Typically, 55% cream is used. Whipping usually doubles the initial volume, depending on how much air gets incorporated. To whip a cream properly, chill it. Whip it, set it aside (refrigerated) to settle. Drain any separated liquids. Add flavoring and sweetener. Whip it again. Using low fat cream will only separate more liquid from the whipped portion.
Are you whipping it and it's not keeping? To properly whip up thick cream, whip it cold in a chilled bowl. Then let it set in the refrigerator an hour or so, this will separate out any liquid milk in the cream. Skim the cream off this and whip it again in a clean chilled bowl with a little vanilla and powdered sugar. This should stay stiff and thick.
Yes, whip cream, particularly homemade whip cream, is delicious on a large variety of pies. Whip cream is easy to make, take whipping cream, and use an electronic beater with whisk attachment (or just a hand whisk) and whip on medium high. add sugar to taste. It's ready when light and fluffy. If you whisk too much, you've made delicious sugary butter. My preference for hot Apple pie though is vanilla bean ice-cream.
I don't actually know, but I strongly suspect you cannot. Blenders are designed for crushing/slicing, not for whipping (which is basically mixing air into a substance, usually at a fairly low speed). I would think that attempting to whip cream in a blender would get you at most "partially whipped" cream.
