Strawberry Whipped Cream Frosting: Fresh vs Frozen

Though you can use either fresh or frozen strawberries, using fresh strawberries will give it a crisper taste. However, if strawberries are out of season, using frozen strawberries is your best bet. When frozen strawberries thaw, they have extra liquid, so make sure to drain them prior to pureeing them.

Buttercream and whipped cream frostings are two of the most popular frostings. Both are tasty frostings and work great with many baked goods. However, not everyone knows the difference between the two.

Buttercream has a rich and creamy taste, with a thicker consistency than whipped cream frosting. Butter, hence the name buttercream, is almost always found in this frosting. There are also a variety of different types of buttercream such as American, French and Italian.

This frosting is easy to make and requires little baking experience. This is a great frosting for the cakes that you are bringing to a summer cookout.

Equipment

To prepare this frosting, you will need:

Place the mixing bowl and attachment in the fridge thirty minutes prior to making the frosting. This will allow the frosting to achieve the right consistency.

If you don’t have fresh or frozen strawberries, you may use four tablespoons of strawberry jello powder. The strawberry jello with give it a nice strawberry taste along with a pretty pink color.

However, both types of sugar will still give the frosting a great taste and give it the right consistency.
