How to Fold Ingredients for Baking With a Whisk
The way you whip and fold egg whites or whipped cream into batters is crucial to the success of your baked goods. A rubber spatula is the most common tool used to fold ingredients, but there's one that does the job even better. See our tip for how to fold whipped ingredients into batters for baking success.
It's commonplace to use a rubber spatula for folding whipped cream or egg whites into other ingredients. A wire whisk works better because it combines ingredients a lot faster without deflating them. Mix about a third of the whipped cream or egg whites into the other ingredients to lighten them. Then use the whisk to gently fold the rest of the whites or cream in as usual.
