Whipped cream cakes refer to cakes that either incorporate whipped cream into the batter or use whipped cream as a primary frosting. They offer a light, airy texture and are often associated with freshness due to the delicate nature of whipped cream. Here’s a breakdown:

Whipped Cream as Frosting:

More commonly, when people refer to “whipped cream cakes,” they are talking about cakes that are frosted with whipped cream rather than traditional buttercream or fondant. Here’s what you might expect:

  • Texture: Whipped cream provides a soft, airy, and light texture, which contrasts with the often denser textures of buttercream or fondant.
  • Flavor: Whipped cream has a subtle sweetness and dairy freshness, making it less sweet than many other frosting options.
  • Versatility: Whipped cream can be flavored with various ingredients, such as vanilla, chocolate, fruit purees, or liqueurs, to complement the cake’s flavor.
  • Decoration: While whipped cream isn’t as stable as buttercream or fondant, it can still be piped into simple decorations using a piping bag and various nozzles. It’s also common to see whipped cream cakes garnished with fresh fruits, chocolate shavings, or sprinkles.
  • Storage: Cakes frosted with whipped cream need to be refrigerated due to the perishable nature of the cream. They are best consumed within a day or two to enjoy the fresh taste and texture of the whipped cream.

Examples of Whipped Cream Cakes:

  • Strawberry Shortcake: Often made with layers of sponge or biscuit, fresh strawberries, and generous amounts of whipped cream.
  • Black Forest Cake: A rich chocolate cake layered with cherries and whipped cream.
  • Mango Cream Cake: Layers of soft cake with fresh mango slices and whipped cream.

Whipped cream cakes are perfect for those who prefer a less sweet dessert and appreciate the fresh and light qualities of whipped cream. They are especially popular in warmer climates or during the summer months when a lighter, refreshing cake is desired.

What cake batters work best with whipped cream?

For whipped cream cakes where the whipped cream is used as a frosting or filling, almost any type of cake batter can work. However, some cake bases complement the light and airy texture of whipped cream better than others. Here are some cake batters that work especially well with whipped cream:

  1. Sponge Cake: This light and airy cake pairs beautifully with whipped cream. Its structure can hold up the weight of the cream while complementing its texture.
  2. Chiffon Cake: Made with vegetable oil, eggs, sugar, flour, baking powder, and flavorings, chiffon cakes are moist and airy, making them an excellent choice for whipped cream cakes.
  3. Genoise: A type of sponge cake, Genoise is made by beating whole eggs, often with sugar, over warm water and then carefully folding in the flour. Its light texture pairs well with whipped cream.
  4. Angel Food Cake: Made with whipped egg whites and no fat, this cake is incredibly light and fluffy. Its airy texture is a perfect match for whipped cream.
  5. Butter Cake or Pound Cake: While denser than sponge or chiffon cakes, the rich flavor of butter or pound cakes can be nicely balanced with the lightness of whipped cream.
  6. Carrot Cake: The moist and slightly dense texture of carrot cake can be complemented well by whipped cream, especially if you’re looking for a lighter alternative to traditional cream cheese frosting.

When choosing a cake batter for whipped cream cakes, consider the following:

  • Moisture Content: If you’re planning to use fruits along with whipped cream, a slightly denser cake might be better, as it can handle the additional moisture without becoming soggy.
  • Serving Occasion: Lighter cakes like chiffon or sponge are perfect for afternoon tea or warm weather celebrations, while more decadent cakes like butter cake might be better for more decadent occasions.
  • Flavor Profile: Think about the overall flavor profile you’re aiming for. A rich chocolate sponge might pair beautifully with a lightly sweetened whipped cream, while a berry-flavored whipped cream might better complement a zesty lemon chiffon.

Remember, when using whipped cream as a frosting or filling, it’s essential to store the cake in the refrigerator to ensure the cream remains fresh and stable.
