Using our Gravel Collection at home, you can create the sundaes of your dreams.

But to make the dreamiest sundaes, you’ll need know how to make a key ingredient: fresh, hand-whipped cream.

What you need to make whipped cream at home and and how to master the quick process:


  • 1 cup (8 dollops) heavy cream
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 1 large metal or glass bowl, chilled
  • 1 balloon whisk


  • Chill the bowl in the refrigerator for at least 15 minutes; it should be cold to the touch.
  • Add the cream, sugar, and vanilla extract to the chilled bowl and whip by hand.
  • Use immediately, or refrigerate for up to 1 hour.

Chilling the bowl makes a huge difference. The colder the bowl and the cream, the faster the cream will whip and thicken.

As for the cream, if you can find non-homogenized cream, use it. Non-homogenized cream whips up faster and it has a lovely light-yellow hue.
