Coloring Cream: How to Do It and What You Should Pay Attention to

Instructions: Color the cream

You can easily make colorful whipped cream yourself. You can decorate your cakes and tarts with colorful details or color an entire cream. All you need is the whipped cream, a mixer, some whipped cream, and food coloring. And this is how your whipped cream gets colored:

  1. Put a cup of whipped cream in a tall container.
  2. Take a mixer and whip the cream until stiff.
  3. Just before the cream sets, add a packet of whipped cream stabilizers or a substitute.
  4. To color the cream, let a few drops of food coloring of your choice run into the cup while stirring.
  5. The more food coloring you add, the more intense the color of the whipped cream will be.
  6. Place the whipped cream in the fridge for about two hours.
  7. Decorate your cake with the colored cream just before serving.


More ways to color cream

Besides food coloring, there are other methods you can use to add color to your whipped cream:

  • If you don’t want to use artificial additives like food coloring, there are many natural ways to add color to cream. The syrup is also suitable for coloring whipped cream, for example. Just use red syrup to turn whipped cream pink.
  • You can also stir some strawberry jam or raspberry jam into the whipped cream for pink cream. Fresh red fruit, which you puree beforehand and then add to the cream, also has the same effect.
  • You can get dark whipped cream by adding some baking cocoa. Or you can melt chocolate or couverture in a saucepan and mix the liquid with the cream after it has cooled down.
