with gelatin

1. Transfer a large mixing bowl to the refrigerator or freezer to chill it before beginning. Make sure that you choose a bowl that will not be damaged by the temperature and isn’t so fragile that it could break accidentally.  Let chill for 5 - 10 minutes.


2. Combine gelatin and cold water in a small microwave-safe bowl. Whisk until combined.


3. Remove the bowl from the fridge or freezer. Add the heavy whipping cream and powdered sugar (amount according to your sweetness preferences) to the bowl, beating until it starts to thicken. It should not be to the soft peak stage yet at this point.
