Technique Time: Whip It Good

Red Velvet Meltcakes Recipe When a recipe like our Red Velvet Meltcakes (pictured left) calls for beating heavy cream or egg whites, it will often mention soft or stiff peaks. How do you tell what’s what? You can see where you stand by just lifting up the beaters.

 

  • Soft Peaks will be thick but still droopy and are perfect for dollop-friendly whipped cream.
  • Stiff Peaks will stick up straight from the beaters and are what you’re looking for when making meringue.
