Perfect whipped cream is a light and fluffy topping made by beating heavy cream and sugar until thick and holds its shape. It is commonly used as a topping for desserts, such as cakes, pies, and sundaes. The texture of perfect whipped cream is smooth and creamy with soft peaks and a delicate sweetness. Properly whipped cream should not be too runny or too stiff, but just the right consistency for spreading or piping.
