  • How to whip cream
    Continue to whip more slowly until the cream stands in soft peaks. If you want stiffly whipped cream, continue whipping slowly until firmer peaks form. The higher the fat content of the cream, the more quickly it will thicken. Do not whip any longer than is necessary, or the cream will become grainy.

Note Whip cream as close as possible to the time you will be using or serving it; if left too long, it will separate.
