Additional Information

Step 1

In large chilled bowl, combine cream and sugar. Beat with electric Mixer until soft peaks form. Add piping gel and vanilla; continue to whip until stiff peaks form. Do not overbeat.

Note: Place the Dessert Decorator Ultra stainless steel cylinder in the freezer before use. Whipped cream stays cold longer and produces more distinct decorations. You may also make stabilized whipped cream using a whipped cream stabilizer product available in the baking section of most grocery stores. Follow package directions.
