Pinterest Hacks Tested Series

1. Are you married?
Yes! My husband Chris and I got married in 2012. Here’s our wedding video:

2. How many kids do you have?
Two! 🙂 My daughter (Julia) turned 3 in September, and my son Luke turns 1 in January! Here are my pregnancy vlogs if you’re interested! 🙂

3. Why don’t you show your family in your videos?
Chris and I decided to let THEM make the decision whether or not they want to be in videos when they’re older. We really appreciate all your support and love for our decision! We did introduce everyone to Julia when she was 2 months old ( and Luke here:


  1. Apparently using gelatin in whipping cream is a thing! Just found it on Google. So, boo, I did not come up with a genius new technique, but, yay, there is a way to stabilize whipping cream!

  2. I wonder if adding a bit of flavorless gelatin to the whipping cream might work? Maybe dissolve gelatin in a few tablespoons of hot water, let it come to room temp, and then mix into whipping cream after it’s already been whipped most of the way?

  3. Gelatin, meringue powder, and instant clearjel (which is a modified corn starch) are all ways professional pastry chefs “stabilise” whipped cream. Technically marshmallow fluff would work because of the fact it is basically just sugar and gelatin – but it will be hard to incorporate into the whipped cream without overwhipping or deflating your whipped cream completely.

  4. The best way to stabilize the whipping cream that I have found is vanilla pudding. It does add some flavor, but it makes it thick and beautiful and really just makes it more creamy and delicious!

  5. Hey Rachel, love your hacks videos!! To stabilize your whipping cream, try using packages of ‘Whip It’ by Dr. Oetker. You can find it on Canadian grocery store shelves in the Baking section, near the Jell-O. You can also try using meringue powder by Wilton. They will make your peaks last longer.😊

  6. Just a little hint…before putting marshmallows in microwave spray the bowl with non stick spray. I do it when I make fondant and it comes out like a dream. Also, I use a tad of cream cheese in whipping cream to help with texture. Love watching you and your kiddos have the “cool mom” 😎
