Recipe Notes

Tips for the perfect whipped cream:
If you can, start with cold everything: cream, bowl, and beaters. Keep the cream refrigerated until ready to use. I measured mine out and placed the measuring cup in the freezer (but watch closely, it freezes fast). I also put my Bosch mixing bowl and beaters in the freezer for at least 10 minutes before I was going to use it to whip the cream. The colder the better. The whipped cream should come together in approx. 3 minutes. Don't whip too long, otherwise you'll make butter!
