For many of those living on the east coast, Wegmans is a staple in groceries, deli products and baked goods. They are well known for their scrumptious whipped cream frosting, which recently has been improved to include no artificial colors. Fortunately, this recipe for whipped cream frosting you can make in your own kitchen.

Step one: Whisk Cream
In a chilled metal mixing bowl with whisk attachment, add the heavy whipping cream. Beat on medium-high for one minute or until the cream becomes stiff.
Step two: Add the Powdered Sugar
Slowly add the powdered sugar into the mix. Beat the mix on high speed until the frosting reaches a stiff form. Use the frosting immediately or put it in the fridge.
Make sure the frosting is stiff, otherwise the texture will not hold together.
This frosting comes out white, so you can add food coloring to it to reach your desired shade.
You may also add up to one stick of butter if you prefer a creamier texture. One tablespoon of vanilla may also be added to achieve more flavor in the frosting.
When making whipped cream frosting, it is best to chill the mixing bowl and whisk prior to making the frosting for about fifteen minutes. This will help it reach the right consistency and stay cool.
To keep the whipped cream frosting fresh, store frosted baked goods and leftover frosting in the fridge. Make sure to cover your frosted baked goods in the fridge so they won’t absorb other odors from the fridge. The remaining whipped cream frosting will last in the fridge for three days.Make sure the baked goods you frost are completely cool. If the baked goods you frost are still warm, it will cause your whipped cream frosting to melt and lose its consistency.
