What To Do With Leftover Whipped Cream Frosting For Cakes – How To Make Use Of Leftover Whipped Cream Frosting
If you wonder what to do with leftover whipped cream, you can see here what I have I done with the leftover whipped cream we had after frosting the Christmas cake.
I had made this light lavender colored whipped cream frosting using the heavy whipping cream, powdered sugar, vanilla extract and a little blueberry extract filtered from homemade blueberry sauce to add to the blueberry layer cake I had baked.
I used this simple vanilla whipped cream recipe to make a quick and easy whipped cream for the cake, which I later modified slightly to add the blueberry flavor.
I only made a single layered cake but I made enough frosting to use for a two layered cake, so obviously I had some good extra whipped cream leftover once the cake was done. I stored this leftover whipped cream in refrigerator for a couple of days and when I checked it two days later, it was still delicious, but had lost its texture and it was kind of starting to melt.
This leftover whipped cream was still creamy and would be able to spread on a cake, but not enough stiff to do any fancy frosting. So here is what I did with the leftover whipped cream I had in the refrigerator.

I had read somewhere that you could drop spoonfuls of frosting in a cookie sheet lined with wax paper and keep in freezer and later use them as topping for cupcakes easily. I had some leftover banana muffins at home, which too was stored in the refrigerator.
So I had this one bowl of leftover whipped cream, which I frosted onto the banana muffins. I just dropped spoonful of whipped cream on top of the banana muffins and kept the muffins the in the freezer for about 30 minutes. Once they were in the freezer for thirty minutes, I took the muffins out and the frosting on top of the muffins looked pretty good, so I kept the muffins back in the refrigerator for another 15 minutes which had softened up the muffins and the frosting a little, which was perfect!
My little ones enjoyed the muffins topped with the whipped cream frosting and they enjoyed those as if they were cupcakes. I am so glad about the outcome of the trial and so thought of sharing this as it had worked for me. I am looking forward to use this method for using up any leftover whipped cream as needed. Though I used this leftover whipped cream to frost the muffins, I guess you can use it to frost pretty much any homemade treat easily like homemade cakes, cookies, cupcakes etc.
