Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    To make 1 1/2 cups whipped cream, place medium deep bowl and beaters in freezer or refrigerator to chill. Place 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream and 1 tablespoon icing sugar in bowl. Beat on low speed until mixture begins to thicken. Add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla; beat on high speed until soft peaks form.
  • Tip 2
    To ensure success in baking, measure ingredients accurately using the right measuring equipment for the ingredient being measured. For best results, add ingredients in the order they are called for.
