CREAM  The higher the fat content, the better the whipped cream.  Use heavy cream or heavy whipping cream because they are at least 36% fat. Light cream is 18 to 30% fat and won't whip at all.

SUGAR  Confectioners' sugar has a bit of cornstarch in it, which helps to stabilize the whipped cream.  Don't use granulated sugar because it doesn't dissolve as well and can deflate the foam.

WHIPPING  To test for soft peaks lift your whisk or beaters ... the peak of cream should curl over slightly in the bowl.  For stiff peaks, keep beating until you lift the beaters and the peak of cream stands up erectly.  But be careful because the longer you whip, the denser and grainier the cream will become.  If you go too far, fold in a splash of heavy cream.  If it deflates, you've over whipped and you'll have to start again with new cream. Or you can keep whipping and it will turn into butter.
