How long does whipped cream frosting have before it deflates?

luckyfatima | Sep 26, 2011 09:05 AM

I am looking at time constraints of bringing a whipped cream frosted cake (about 1 cup whipped cream beaten with 4 oz sugar, standard recipe) somewhere and I am trying to gauge the appropriate timings because I believe at some point the whipped cream deflates, right? About how long do I have from the time I whip up the frosting till the time it deflates? The cake will be out at room temperature for a short while, too. How long will the whipped cream frosting last whipped in a bowl, because another option I have is to bring the cake and a bowl of frosting and either spread it immediately before serving or even set the bowl out for diners to add it on their own cake.
