Fudge Float Chocolate Cake With Whipped Cream Recipe.

This is a cake my Mom always made. It's very delicious, it seems to have lots of instructions, but it is not hard at all to make. The cake turns out with cake on top and lovely chocolate syrup on the bottom.

We have it with whipped cream on the top. I thought I would make the stabilized whip cream using Knox Gelatine. You would not believe the mess. That recipe with pictures is at the bottom of this hub.

The Recipe That Failed

HOW TO WHIP HEAVY WHIPPING CREAM

Making Whipping Cream:

1 packet of Knox Gelatin

4 tsp. cold water

1-pint heavy whipping cream

1 tsp. vanilla

3 tablespoons confectioners sugar

Mix 1 packet of Knox gelatin with cold water. Microwave for 30 seconds place in refrigerator until cold.

Make sure mixing bowl is cold.

Add 1 pint of whipping cream to a cold bowl and whip for a short time. Add vanilla, sugar and gelatin mixture. Whip until stiff peaks foam

I was going to be smart and make my whip cream using Knox Gelatine. Well, what a mess. First I did it by the recipe. I put the gelatine in the microwave for 30 seconds and cooled it that didn't work ended up with a big blob. I figured maybe I left it in the microwave to long so I did it for 10 seconds. My husband is helping me so I can film it. In the video below you can barely hear him say shsss when he's trying to pour the gelatine in. The Knox turned into another big blob. I had to get it out of the whipped cream as much as I could and then I strained the whipped cream to get the rest of the gelatine out. I put all the whip cream back in the mixer and it turned out great without the gelatine.

I'm always trying to do something different and I should have stuck with the old way I have always done the whipped cream. This did work after the gelatine was pulled out.

Make sure everything is cold, bowl, whip and whipping cream


Whipping Cream Recipe

1-pint heavy whipping cream

1/4 cup granulated sugar or powdered (confectioners) sugar

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Place whipping cream in bowl whip with the stand mixer or hand mixer. Beat for just a little. Add sugar and vanilla and beat until soft peaks appear. Do not over beat you will end up with butter. Refrigerate.

Once you put your whipped cream in the refrigerator it will last for a couple days. You will know when it is no longer good just by the way it looks and gets watery.

I place mine in a glass bowl with an airtight plastic top. It keeps very well in this container. I don't think it keeps as well in a bowl with plastic wrap over it, not if you want to keep it for a couple days. When it gets watery like the picture it is no longer any good and should be thrown out. When it starts looking like the second picture watery and thin loss of fluffiness it is no good.

HINT

Whipped cream in the carton should be throw out according to the box directions. The best used by date is at the top of the box. I bought my box on March 11 and the use by date is 4/29/13 so it last for awhile.

Heavy whipping cream passed the expiration date, due to the high fat content takes longer to go bad than the expiration date states. I have used it in cooked items, like a cake. This is what I do but if you don't feel comfortable doing this than don't. If the cream in the carton is lumpy or sour smelling it is bad and don't use it.

Whipping cream can be frozen, but thaw it in the refrigerator.

DO NOT USE ANY WHIPPING CREAM YOU HAVE LEFT ON THE COUNTER.

Making Whipped Cream

Making whip cream with Knox Gelatine! In the end it turned out good after I removed the gelatine.

      Hi, moonlake,

      Thank you so much for the following. I made this mistake probably from not sleeping due to the pain from Fibromyalgia or just forgot. I am sorry. Forgive me.

      vespawoolf, Thanks for stopping by. I think you have to put the knox gelatine in without heating it up. I think the heating is what made it gel so fast. I'll will try again the next time I need whipping cream.
