Whipped Cream Lime Disaster

freelancer | Oct 24, 2010 07:42 PM

I recently tried to whip up some heavy cream with some lime zest - it foamed, but it never whipped up. Then I tried adding some confectioner's sugar to stabilize it. It fell completely flat. Then I tried (very foolishly) to add some butter in there and maybe make it into a buttercream. Not so much.

I ended up adding sugar and freezing it - hoping it turn into a nice ice cream - but it's clumpy and not at all appetizing.

Is there ANY way I can save this? I was thinking of throwing it in the blender, pureeing it and then mixing some egg yolk and more lime juice - then pouring it into a tart shell to make a tart. Do you think this is possible? And if so, how can I do this?

Help!! I'm determined to do something with this!
