What I Did: First Christmas as a wife, and I wanted to make a healthy and festive breakfast treat for my husband and extended fam. Since we had traveled the day before and were not in our own home, I decided ready-made would be best and didn’t make the whipped cream, I just bought a can of Reddi-wip. Yummy and easy, right?
FYI, I’m also a VERY novice cook and didn’t know there was a difference between homemade whipped cream and Reddi-wip. Apparently there’s tons of air and not much body to the canned stuff. But in my defense, the recipe didn’t warn against using it!
Santa’s face started squishing and melting almost immediately, followed by his hat’s pom-pom and buttons. There wasn’t even time to try to freeze them. We were left with depressed little Santas (and bowls of leftover strawberries and Reddi-wip), but we all got a huge laugh out of it!
Next Time I Will: make actual whipped cream (and still serve them pretty quickly). Super cute idea, but I’m still not sure they’re as easy as the recipe makes them sound! At least if you want them to look as great as the pic in the recipe…
