Cream not whipping

Possible Solutions

Chill the bowl and whip

Cream will whip more quickly if you put the stainless mixing bowl and whip in the freezer for half an hour prior to whipping.


  • Cream whips better when a pinch of salt is added at the beginning.
  • When whipping cream, add the sugar and vanilla when the cream is about 1/2 whipped, and it will whip to a higher volume.
    • Adding the sugar at the beginning results in lower volume.
  • The cream should be as cold as possible, and the bowl should also be very cold.
    • The cream will whip easier and to a higher volume when very cold.
