Chantilly cream

This cooking skill is all about making Chantilly cream.  Chantilly cream (crème Chantilly), or whipped cream, goes great with many cakes and pastries and is really easy to make.  Some people distinguish between the two, with crème Chantilly being sweetened, and whipped cream not (Wikipedia).
