Heavy Whipping Cream

Powdered Sugar

Lemon Juice 

Lemon Zest 

Heavy whipping cream (~36% fat) and regular whipping cream (~30% fat) are interchangeable. Just note that the former will allow for stiffer peaks, while the latter may be a bit softer.

Also note that “heavy cream” is the same thing as “heavy whipping cream.”

Have You Heard Of Weeping?

If you add too much lemon juice to the whipping cream, an interesting event happens, called weeping.

This is when liquid separates from the solid it’s mixed in. In this case, you’ll have your homemade whipped cream sitting in a pool of lemon juice. Not very appetizing. So just be careful how much lemon juice you add.

You can store the lemon whipped cream in the refrigerator for up to 4 hours. Whip again before serving or decorating.

Come on and lets whip some up. Lemon makes everything better!
