Making cream thicker

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hello, I am an ameteur cook.  I've been into cooking for a couple of months (since January) and I now cook something new every day.  I would like to try something.. a 'fiesta float' (otherwise known as a Graham Cake) in the shape of an Easter Egg.

 

A fiesta float is a Filipino dessert, made up of layers of double cream mixed with condensed milk, crushed graham crackers, and fruit cocktail, served in a deep dish, with chocolate grated over the top.  To make these into egg shapes I will need the cream to be thicker / more solid, like the density of a cheesecake. 

 

Can any of the lovely people here tell me how I can make the cream thicker so it will stand, in an egg shape, without falling apart?

 

Many thanks.

Welcome to CT, Champorado! Not sure where you're located but many markets sell Devonshire Clotted Cream. Although I can't answer your original question, if you get into a pinch and cannot make or buy it, here's a recipe that is not the same but tastes similar..  Your dessert sounds delicious, perfect for Springtime.
