Different flavors of whipped cream piped into small mason jars with the words, "Whipped Cream Variations".

What will you need to get started?

All of these recipes start off with heavy cream. Look for “heavy cream” or “heavy whipping cream” at the grocery store. “Whipping cream” has a slightly lower fat content and won’t whip up as well.

Many of the recipes also use powdered sugar for sweetener. Granulated sugar works as a substitute as well.

My favorite way to whip the cream is with a hand mixer. It’s quick and easy to do smaller quantities as well. You can also use a stand mixer, a bowl and whisk, or even a mason jar.
