Cooking Tips:

The secret is to have a cold bowl and cold beaters. I normally stick them in the freezer while I prep the other ingredients.

The cold temperature will help the stiff peaks form faster. To check for stiff peaks, pull the beaters out from cream and peaks should stand up.

Can you make ahead?

Freezer: Absolutely!
