Lemon Whipped Cream

Let’s take a walk down memory lane to establish how lemon whipped cream even became a thing, shall we?

As you may or may not know, every summer my daughter runs a cupcake and lemonade stand in our front yard.

She hosts is every Wednesday night during a HUGE city wide event at the park right down the street.

Instead of paying the INSANE fees to be a vendor at the event, we opened up our little stand in front of our house where the rent was free.

And sell she did.  We make on average 120 cupcakes a week and either sell our or almost sell out every week, depending on the band that is playing that night.

Big bands mean bigger crowds which means more cupcakes sold. 

Lesser known bands bring in smaller crowds and less sales.

The catch with our cupcake and lemonade stand is that every week we offer a new gourmet cupcake but keep the flavor a mystery to our clients. 

They have to show up to find out the flavor of the week!  And show up they do!

So one week we decided to offer a Lemon Lover’s Cupcake – soon to be featured here on Num’s. 

This lemon lovers cupcake was a mild lemon cupcake filled with lemon whipped cream and topped with Lemon Buttercream Frosting.  We then topped it all off with a lemon drop.

I did mention we offer gourmet cupcakes, right? 

Well the lemon whipped cream in the center was AH-MAZING.

So amazing that I don’t want to forget how I made it as I plan on making it many more times!

Just think of all the ways you can use lemon whipped cream.

Cupcake filling, cake filling, on top of a blueberry pie, lemon pie or any kind of pie that you feel would compliment with lemon. 

How about an Italian Soda?  Stir in the lemon whipped cream for a rich and tasty drink that has me drooling right now!

My favorite part about this lemon whipped cream is that it’s naturally flavored.  No extra sugars or extract.  Yummy lemon curd made from real lemons and zest give your whipped cream that extra boost it needs.

If you love the flavor lemon, you really should give this a try.  It’s a simple and tasty way to use up that lemon curd you have sitting around and one your guests will rave about!
