How to Save Over Whipped Cream
Saving over whipped cream is easier than you might think! Properly-whipped cream should be smooth, light and airy. If your whipped cream has started to look curdled or thick and clumpy, all is not lost. To correct it and bring it back to its best self, simply add MORE heavy cream to your bowl and gently whisk it in. The extra cream will smooth out any clumps and lighten the whipped cream.
To smooth out your over whipped cream, add the heavy cream a tablespoon at a time.
Whip the added cream in with the mixer on low to incorporate it slowly.
