long lasting Whipped cream

are you tired of your whip cream spoiling quick? well i have a solution. all you need is unflavored gelatin, confectioners sugar, and some cold water! you will first add 2 tsp of cold water into a sauce pan then add the confectioners sugar in with the gelatin. then pour the gelatin and sugar into the sauce pan. after the gelatin get"s thick, pour the gelatin into the whip cream. next use a blender and blend it all together. after that, you sit it in the fridge, and after 2 months, your whipped cream will still be fresher than ever. enjoy!
