Don’t buy those nasty whipped cream from the dairy aisle, it’s atrocious! Make your own instead. It will only take 10 minutes tops.
With a hand mixer or whisk, whip 1 cup heavy cream until it reaches soft peak. Beat in 1 teaspoon vanilla essence and 1 tablespoon of icing sugar until peaks form. Make sure not to over-beat because the cream will then become lumpy.
