This gluten free Whipped Cream Frosting is fun to make and so easy that the children can practically do it by themselves. I like to spread it over my Banana Cream Pie Cupcakes, though it goes equally well with Chocolate Cupcakes.

If you are into eating just the frosting, you might want to dust some Chocolate “Dirt” over it. Enjoy!
I’m making a peach layer cake, and I was wondering if it’d be possible to substitute the honey for either canned peach syrup, peach jam/preserves, or peach puree? Would the whipped cream still come out with the right texture? Or if you could direct me to another whipped cream/buttercream recipe where I could use fruit as sweetener, that would be great.
Skye, I haven’t tried that so not sure, feel free to experiment and I hope you’ll let me know what works :-)
will this whipped cream frosting stay on a cake?
Bethany, I haven’t tried that so not sure. It does work super well on cupcakes :-)
In the photo, it looks like it can be piped, but it’s a dairy base. My question is this: If I make this to put on cupcakes for an outdoor bake sale (73-75 degree weather), how long can I reasonably expect the frosting to remain looking piped following the recipe as written?
Annalisa, thanks for your question. I haven’t served this outside so not sure :-)
I followed the dairy free recipe to a tee and used the hand mixer for over 10 min and never got it to form peaks. Did I not mix it enough or is there another trick?
Hi Jen, check out the notes in this recipe for more tips on getting perfect Coconut Whipped Cream:
I had found that in any baked food, you can sub Truvia for honey and it turns out the same or better!!!
Awesome tip! Thanks much!
Do you use the same amount?
Can I leave it in the refrigerator afterward?…..if there is any left?
Oops! I just made honey butter. Thanks for the recipe. Next time I will not do my math at the same time.
