For a sweet summer snack, nothing eases the fruit down the gullet better then some freshly whipped cream! Its quick and simple to make, as well as easy to customize depending on what flavors you want to accentuate. A standard favorite is to mix vanilla and sugar in with the cream, but you have the option of many different flavored liqueurs to give an added twist, creme de'menthe for a bit of minty mystique, amaretto for some almond allure, or bourban for the burly bite!
To make your own whip cream, just take heavy cream and whip it! I use my KitchenAid mixer, but you can use a hand mixer as well. If you have neither, don't despair; you just need to get creative. For more details, here is my Instructable for homemade whipped cream along with a bunch of great suggestions from fellow readers.
