You could use the prepared Cool Whip for this easy lemon cake recipe, or you could add in some homemade whipped cream on your own, either way, you know this recipe is going to taste good. Making your whipped cream is not as difficult as some people might think, it is very easy and always taste that much better than premade. To make your own whipped cream recipe, you will need some heavy whipping cream and some quality vanilla extract. Make sure to leave the heavy cream in the refrigerator right up until you are ready to whip it. It's always best when the cream is cold. Otherwise, it might not work. When ready, measure the cream out into the bowl of a stand mixer or a metal bowl (which should also be cold), then add the vanilla extract and other flavorings if you like. Start by whipping the heavy cream and increasing the mixer speed to medium. For the first several minutes, the heavy cream will start off very frothy and bubbly. Then after about four to five minutes, you will start to see trails in the heavy cream that don't immediately dissolve after the whisk or beater moves, and this is exactly what you want. Keep whipping, and after about six to seven minutes some soft peaks should form. After about seven to eight minutes, you will watch as firm whipped peaks form, and become stiffer and stiffer as you go. The whipped cream will start to take on some volume, and if you take the whisk or the beater out of the whipped cream, the peaks in the whipped cream will hold firmly and should have slightly softened tips. This is usually the best time to stop whipping and serve up the whipped cream. At this stage, you want to be sure and stop, as you don't want to over beat the whipped cream.
