Sour Cream Mixture for Piping

This is a much easier and quicker method than thickening the cream by whipping and, because such a small amount is actually eaten, the flavor of the sour cream is not noticeable. Instructions for using sour cream mixture in decorating are given.


  • Heavy cream
  • Sour cream


  1. Gradually stir enough heavy cream into sour cream until the mixture is approximately the same consistency as the sauce you are decorating.
  2. Use as directed in the individual recipes. This mixture will keep for days in the refrigerator, but it may have to be thinned.
