I am attending a cake decorating class right now and the recipe for my next class (Tues.) calls for Heavy Cream. When I went to the store to get it all I could find was Heavy whipping cream. Are they the same ? The recipe is for a White chocolate fondant.
Thanks for the help.

Heavy Cream or Heavy "Whipping" Cream is 36-40% butterfat and when whipped it holds its form and doubles in volume.

Whipping Cream has a butterfat content of 30%. It whips but not as well as heavy cream, and will not hold its form long.

Heavy cream substitute:
(Where whipping isn't required.)

I use heavy whipping cream in fondant. It's the only thing I can find around here. It works fine. And the leftovers are great in coffee. icon_biggrin.gif

You never did get an answer, did you?

Wish I could help.

I always do the biggest fat in the cream department. I make homemade ice cream.

Jan answered the Q. They are the same @ 36-40% fat.

Thanks everyone, I know it was probably a silly question I just wasn't sure.
