According to Food.com, today is National Whipped Cream Day.
Real whipped cream is very easy to make. All you need is an electric mixer and heavy whipping cream. Place the chilled cream in a chilled bowl and turn the mixer on. As air is added to the cream it becomes stiff. If you are using it in a dessert, add 1 cup of sugar and 1 teaspoon of vanilla for each pint of cream. The sugar and vanilla should be added slowly to the running mixer.
One of my favorite desserts with whipped cream is a Chocolate Cloud Cake. It combines the richness of a chocolate fudge cake and lightness of the whipped cream for a perfect dessert. The recipe for Chocolate Cloud Cake can be found here.
