For Whipping Cream Frosting:

  • Take a bowl. Add Whipping Cream to it. Beat it for some time until it doubles in its quantity. Now add powdered sugar to it. Beat it till cream reaches needed consistency. When you take whipping cream  in a spoon, it shouldn't fall down. That is the needed consistency. Your frosting is now ready.

  7. Place a cherry on the top of each rosette.
  8. Your interesting Cake is ready
