I prefer using whipped cream as a frosting for my cakes, as opposed to the butter cream frosting. It feels more light and airy and is not as heavy as the butter cream one. Also I could use a small amount of sugar when using whipped cream than in the one with butter. However, the kiddos were not happy with white frosting and wanted to see some colors. My new discovery of beet based color led me to make use of it in my frosting too.
This is just the way a slice of my cake looked with the pretty pink frosting:)
Heavy whipping cream-1quart
Beet Juice-2-3 tbs
Organic Sugar( powdered)-1/2 cup
1. Use an electric whisk or a standing mixer with a whisk attachment and whisk the whipping cream until it develops stiff peaks.
2. Add powdered sugar to whipped cream and run the whisk until the sugar gets incorporated.
3. Turn the mixer off and pour in the beet juice and mix well until you get the desired shade of pink or a deep red.
4. Use the whipped cream to frost your cake and enjoy!
1. You may add any flavoring or essence you have added to your cake batter.
2. A small amount of the beet juice goes a long way. Use a tiny bit at a time and use more as needed.
