  • 1
    In a large saucepan over medium heat, whisk together 1/2 cup cream, powdered sugar and cornstarch. Continue whisking, heating just until the mixture thickens, but do not allow to boil.
  • 2
    Transfer to fridge and allow to cool completely. Note: this mixture must cool completely for the frosting to work.
  • 3
    In a large bowl or stand mixer, beat remaining 1 1/2 cups cream until soft peaks form. Slowly add spoonful's of the cooled cornstarch mixture. Beat just until fluffy, with peaks that hold. Pipe and enjoy or refrigerate until ready to serve.

Expert Tips

Store in the fridge overnight, but feel free to place on your party table for an hour or two. The frosting will stand up that long in room temperature without wilting or weeping.
