The temperature

It is very important that the cream is very cold before whipping it, you cannot take the brick of whipping cream from the pantry or from a cupboard, it has to be in the fridge for at least 12 hours, although due to lack of time or organization, sometimes the freezer is used, where it reaches low temperatures quickly.

The fat

There are creams with different fat content, if it is to whip, the higher the percentage of fat, the better. In Spain, cream is easily found 35% MG (Fat Matter), and it is enough, but we can also find cream at the 38% M.G. and is of national origin. It is convenient to read the packaging, check the percentage of fat it has and that the ingredients only contain cream, as there are also preparations with additives, stabilizers, etc., but they do not have as good a flavor or a natural flavor, even if they are prepared to whip better. .

The container and utensils

Fat easily absorbs odors and flavors, so it is very important that the container and the Utensils that are going to be used to whip cream are well clean and dry. It is also often recommended that the rods and the whipping bowl be put in the fridge for a while before so that they are also very cold, and preferably use materials such as stainless steel, a better conductor of temperature and keeps the cold longer than the plastic. But it is not strictly necessary for the utensils to be in the fridge before whipping cream, but the liquid cream is.

Commercial stabilizers can be used (they usually contain starch, anti-caking agent, sugar …) or alternatives that we can all have at home, such as icing sugar, powdered milk, cornstarch, powdered curd, gelatin … Any stabilizer must be incorporated when the cream is semi-whipped and little by little.
