    How To Make Whipped Cream?

      Whipped cream is an essential component when it comes to most cakes.

        Therefore, whether you are making a white rosette cake or my favorite teal birthday cake, whipped cream is a must.

        • For making whipped cream, firstly, take whipping cream in a bowl. Then,beat it at low speed with the help of an electric beater.
        • Add powdered sugar and essence when bubbles start forming and attain a creamy texture.
        • Beat your whipping cream with icing sugar and vanilla essence. Add white food color into it and mix evenly.

        NOTE- Mix icing sugar and the essence at thelast beating stage.

        • Beat the ingredients at high speed until stiff peak forms.
        • After you are done beating the ingredients, you need to divide the whipped cream into three parts and take them in 3 different bowls. Then, add teal green color in one bowl and violet color in another bowl.
        • Finally, in the remaining whipped cream, add white color. This is the mix you will be using for your purple and teal birthday cake.
        • Finally, store the cream in the fridge for ½ hour.

        Icing Process:

        • For the icing necessary for your teal birthday cakes, first, make the sugar syrup by boiling water and sugar.
        • You need to ensure that your sponge and sugar syrup remain at room temperature for the icing process.
        • Next, slice your sponge into 2 or 3 layers with the help of a bread knife and spray sugar syrup on it.

        • Put white whipped cream at each layer with the help of a palette knife.
        • Next, pour 2 Tbsp vanilla malas and spread them evenly with the use of a palette knife.
        • Finally, put some tutti frutti on top of the cream layer at every level.
        • Put the white whipped cream at the cake slices side edges.
        • Now, plan it with the help of a palette knife and scrapper by removing the extra amount of cream.

        NOTE- Clean the palette knife every time youare removing and smoothing the surface for an even icing.

        • Now decorate your purple and teal birthday cake as per your choice with whipped cream by different nozzles and piping bags.
        • Make some rosette designs with a flower naillifter as per your choice.
        • Decorate with some tutti frutti and coloring sprinkles.
        • Lastly, spray golden color on flowers for a perfect-looking teal and gold birthday cake. If you want a color variation, you can even try making teal and white birthday cakes just by skipping the part where you mix violet color in the whipped cream.


        • First, sprinkle some water on your palette knife.
        • Next, use baking powder and baking soda at last before baking. Else the activation power can be reduced.
        • Try using a turntable to get the desired result at the time of icing.
        • Finally, don't overbeat the batter. Mix in a manner where there are no lumps.
        • Avoid opening the microwave oven multiple times to check the cake texture. If cool air enters the oven, it will create cracks in the cake resulting in an imperfect surface.
