Whipped cream is cream that has been beaten by a mixer, whisk, or fork until it is light and fluffy. Whipped cream is often sweetened and sometimes flavored with vanilla, in which case it may be called Chantilly cream or crème Chantilly.
Cream is usually whipped with a whisk, an electric or hand mixer, or (with some difficulty) a fork.
Whipped cream may be sold ready-to-use in pressurized containers.
Whipped cream is a popular topping for desserts such as pie, ice cream, cupcakes, cake, and puddings. It is sometimes used in other recipes such as soups.
