If you are looking for a fun new frosting recipe to try, this delicious pineapple whipped cream frosting is perfect. Light and fluffy yet full of flavor, you can't go wrong with this recipe. It is perfect for enjoying with your favorite desserts on a warm summer day, as it is so refreshing.
Chill Mixing Bowl and Whisk - Place your mixing bowl from your mixer and whisk in the fridge to chill. Cold equipment will help your whipped cream come together better.
Dice Pineapples - Carefully dice your pineapples into fine pieces and then crush them. If you are using canned pineapples, drain them well, and if desired chop them finely as well.
Whip the Cream and Powdered Sugar - Using your electric mixer with the bowl and whisk that have been chilled, whip the cream with the powdered sugar. Beat the cream at high speed until stiff peaks form, approximately four minutes.
Add the Pineapple - Once your cream has reached stiff peaks, add your pineapple. Carefully fold the pineapple in. Be sure to do so gently in order to not deflate the whipped cream.
Frost Your Cake - Using an offset spatula or piping bag, frost your cake with the pineapple whipped cream. You may also pair it with any other of your favorite baked goods.
Store this whipped cream frosting in an airtight container in the fridge for one to two days. After a couple of days, whipped cream will begin to deflate and lose its consistency.Any baked goods frosted with whipped cream, whether cake, cupcakes, cheesecake, or cookies, should also be kept in the fridge. Whipped cream frosting will begin to melt at room temperature, so it must be kept cold.Whipped cream frosting does not freeze well. It is very delicate and can easily lose its texture and even taste when frozen. However, you can freeze your cakes unfrosted and then frost them once you are ready to use them to save time.Be sure when serving your baked goods with pineapple and whipped cream to keep them out of the sun. Whipped cream will quickly melt when exposed to hot temperatures or sunlight. Store the decorated dessert in the fridge as long as you can before serving for best results.Though chilling the mixing bowl and whisk isn't mandatory, it is helpful. The cold metal will make it easier for stiff peaks to form in the whipped cream. Simple pop your mixing bowl and whisk in the fridge 20 minutes or so before you make your whipped cream.Make sure you crush the pineapple into fine pieces if you plan to use a piping bag to decorate. If the chunks are too big, they will get stuck in the tip of the piping bag. This will not be a problem if you are using an offset spatula to decorate with.
