In Australia we are able to buy whipped cream in a dispenser can, but since it costs about 5 times the price of pure cream, why not make your own? In fact, amongst my friends and acquaintances, I don't know anyone who actually buys the ready made variety.
For whipped cream, I take a 300ml bottle of thickened cream, add a spoon or two of vanilla, then a tablespoon of caster sugar (optional). Beat with an electric hand mixer until peaks hold their shape. (Do not overbeat). Quick, easy and much tastier than the manufactured stuff!
