How do I make whipped cream?

What is whipped cream? Do i have to whip heavy cream to make it whipped cream?

Submitted by havilahp

Whipped cream is just cream that's been whipped with a whisk or mixer until it's fluffy. To whip cream, start with heavy cream and place in a chilled bowl. Use a large whisk or an electric mixer and beat just until peaks form. If you beat too long it will start getting very thick and curdled looking (at this point you are on your way to making butter!). For sweetened whipped cream you can add a tablespoon or 2 of sugar and a little vanilla to the heavy cream before beating.
