My favorite mascarpone whipped cream is even more heavenly with a kick of cake batter and sprinkles. With only 3 ingredients and 5 minutes you’ll have a big bowl of funfetti whipped cream ready to go!

Funfetti Whipped Cream

Everyone knows how much I love my mascarpone whipped cream. I love everything about it and it takes way more willpower than I care to admit not to just sit down with the bowl and eat it by the ladle spoonful.

#bakerproblems, amirite?

Annnnnnd I just made my own problems worse by adding cake mix and sprinkles to the… well, mix. I fall fast and hard for anything cake batter. Cake batter ice cream, cake batter fudge, cake batter… cake batter!

And now cake batter whipped cream.

Funfetti Whipped Cream

5 tips for making funfetti whipped cream

  • My favorite mascarpone cheese to use is the classic BelGioioso in the white and green container, and I can usually find it in any grocery store. Make sure it’s fresh out of the fridge and cold – it makes a difference!
  • The mixing bowl needs to be as cold as you can get it. Stick it in the freezer for an hour before you start prepping the recipe, it helps!
  • I make my own vanilla extract using vanilla beans and vodka, but that requires a lot of planning ahead! So if you’re tight on time, I highly recommend this Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Extract (aff link). It’s on the pricier side, but I truly believe it’s worth it. If you need to keep things budget-friendly, Rodelle pure vanilla extract (aff link) is always a solid choice.
  • Also, you definitely want a KitchenAid for this recipe, because your arm is going to get tired if you use a hand mixer (aff link).
  • And if you’re fancy schmancy and you have one of those stainless steel whipped cream dispensers, load it up! I’m not fancy, so mine just goes into a sealed plastic container.

Great! Now what should I do with it?

Top everything with it! Top nothing with it (and just eat it out of the bowl)! Throw it into a pre-made pie crust and call it day!

But in all seriousness, you can put this on just about anything. Here are some ideas:

There’s no limit but your imagination… and stomach capacity ;)

There’s really not much else I can say about this other than: Make this. Make this NOW.

More funfetti fun!
