Looking to make homemade whipped cream for your delicious dessert. Here is a super simple way to make homemade whipped cream for this strawberry shortcake dessert.
1 cup heavy cream, 1 tablespoon powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla.
In a stand mixer or hand mixer, whip it up until stiff peaks form. Once the peaks form it is ready to be used in your berry shortcake dessert.

No, you are more than welcome to use store-bought whipped cream. I recommend buying a tub don’t use a can as it will deflate very fast otherwise.

Can I Make This In Advance
You can make the dessert a day in advance, but the thing is I wouldn’t do more than 24 hours. You will find that the fruit will begin to break down. The whipped cream will break down as the fruit juice releases as well.
I tend to prefer to make around 12 hours in advance.
