Put all ingredients in a chilled bowl and whip until peaks form.

The most important part of whipping cream is the amount of whipping you do - too much and your cream will curdle. Test it regularly by forming peaks in the cream.

Soft peaks will form when lifted, but easily fall over. That means the cream is almost done.
Firm peak hold their shape solidly when formed and once that happens, stop whipping!

If you are whipping the cream and using it immediately, it is most common to whip it to firm peaks. If you are going to be putting it into a pastry bag or spreading it back and forth simply whip it to soft peaks, as it will continue to firm up while you are using it.
