The stages of making homemade whipped cream for a party for the pie I am not even going to eat.

Too thin.
Still too thin.
Still too thin.
Still too thin.
Still too thin.
I think it's thickening... :crossed:

Haha-I did that once. Now I buy the kind in a squirt can or cool whip - lol !

:lol: I have to laugh, because I have done that, too!

My friend used to tell stories about a store he worked in where they made their own whipped cream. In one: He turns the mixer on with the cream in it. Walks away to deal with a customer. Comes back... butter. :rofl:

I too have made butter on accident. Ugh! Still though, I love making my own whipped cream. I don't do it often though!

Did you chill the bowl and beaters first? I have never had mine go to butter but they say it gets a yellow tinge before this happens. I start sprinkling in a little sugar when I see it is starting to thicken.

The whipping cream I have been using here is 35% fat (Canada likes to keep us informed), I don't know if that makes a difference.

Yeppers. Me too. Made me soooo mad! lol The last time though, it came out fine and tasted good. You just have to move the beaters around a lot and lift it up a bit to see if it makes soft peaks. Once that happens, your good to go. lol

Sort of - related. Did you know that you can greatly reduce the amount of sugar in whipped cream by adding a little almond extract? My family never even notices and they all swear that I make the best whipped cream
