Heavy cream, whipping cream, full fat cream, pure cream, thickened cream… And the list goes on. So many labels, but which is the right cream to use?

Ignore the labels and look for the fat content! 35% or a higher percentage is the magic number to look for! This sort of cream would make the perfect fluffiest whipped cream topping and it also would be the best sort of cream to use for ganache or mousse!

Here are some of my favorite creams to use when the recipe calls for heavy cream:

  1. Bulla fresh thickened cream

Perfect for: frosting* and whipped cream (or some would call it Chantilly cream)

*Note: Generally, this is a brand that I always use if I want to frost my cakes with a light whipped cream instead of ganache or buttercream. This whipped cream is very stable and holds up well in our super hot weather! It’s easy to spread, perfect for frosting designs and it tastes awesome!

 

 

 

 

I hope this helps clear up some of your confusion about the different sorts of creams around!

Lots of love,
