Fresh Whipped Cream

1 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream (liquid)
1/3 Cup Powdered Sugar 

Beat together cream and sugar until STIFF pecks form. To flavor add smashed fresh fruit, extracts, flavored oils. 

For a chocolate fresh whipped cream-- add 1/4 cup more powdered sugar, 1 T unsweetened cocoa powder, 1 t vanilla extract (mexican vanilla is my personal favorite). This is a good place to start, if you want darker color, and more cocoa, but remember to add more powdered sugar and vanilla to keep it sweet. 

Decorating Tips:
Work in layers-- your first layer won't look perfect, freeze until whipped cream is firm and then add your second layer. 

Frost moving in one direction-- avoid any back and forth motions, this will pick up cake bits in your frosting (not so cute!)
