Chocolate Whipped Cream Frosting

Light and fluffy, whipped cream frosting is a great alternative to a heavy buttercream.

Preparation 10 mins
Total Time 0:10


  • 2 Tablespoons cold water
  • 1 teaspoon gelatin, unflavored
  • 1 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 2 Tablespoons 100% Cocoa Powder
  • 3 Tablespoons powdered sugar (depending how sweet you want it)


  1. Place cold water into a small bowl. Sprinkle gelatin over and allow it to sit for 5 minutes to soften. Place into microwave for 10 seconds. Gelatin should be melted.
  2. In your mixer, whip cream with a whisk attachment. When soft peaks start to form, add in cocoa and sugar. As stiff peaks form, add in melted gelatin. Whip until completely blended.
  3. Frost cake or cupcakes, use on a pie or anywhere else whipped cream can be used.
  4. For storing overnight, place into a sealable container and place in the fridge. Give it a slight stir before frosting your cake, being careful not to deflate the cream.
