Frozen Whipped Cream (pinterest fail)



So, I found this (what I thought was) AMAZING idea.  It takes time to make whipped cream, and I don't always have whipping cream on hand to make it.  I thought it would be fun to try.




Although the picture doesn't look great, it worked okay and I had that freezer bag full of whipped cream lumps ready to pull out whenever I need them.

A few weeks later I used one for hot cocoa, and pulled out a couple more for my daughter's pudding.  I'll tell you straight, the texture was awful.  They melted like freezer burnt ice cream or something. I don't know how to explain it.  The melting was not a smooth process and the whipped cream was almost granular when not frozen anymore.  I won't do it again, so I thought it'd be fair to share my pinterest fail.  (Most of the things I pin have been wins, though, by the way :).
