Ever since I've gotten interested in desert making a couple years ago, I've always wanted to know how to make thick cream. When I say 'thick' I mean the consistency of cheesecake. Cream that when you pull the cake out of the fridge and leave it, doesn't fucking melt all over the damn cake, and is firm to the touch almost. I've heard of using such things as gelatin, but also that this only prolongs the amount of time until the cream melts into foam.
I see videos using 'chantilly cream' : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCrY0hLeWyU
...but when I look for recipes, it is just plain old whipped cream.
How do I make cream as thick as 'fake' cream on cakes you buy in stores?
I'm sorry if this topic has been discussed before.

Gelatin is the stuff that makes Jell-O jelly. That stuff is essentially jellified whipped cream.
You can also use agar if you're vegetarian, gelatin is made out of skin, hooves, bones, etc. The modern horse glue.

When I went to a desert decoration course, we learnt how to make 'butter cream', and I've got to say, this is NOT what I mean. Buttercream as I learnt to make it is very oily and grainy (butter and shortening of course), where as this is creamy and smooth.

I don't often use gelatin in my cooking, by the way- this is just way I have heard of making thick cream, but I also doubt its reliability.

Sounds like you want Clotted Cream. Can't you buy it where you are?

Unlikely unless he lives in Southwest England. It's not exported because of the shelflife and they don't appear to make it elsewhere.

Not true, you can get clotted cream quite easily in Ireland and surely they'd do it in most places in the UK as well?

I've never seen it near me in Eastern England. It's in every shop in Cornwall and Devon though.

That's strange, I never knew that. I always assumed it was a common item in most places.

>Wasting clotted cream in a cake when you could be using it in fudge.

Sounds like OP doesn't know shit about anything. Stop baking if you can't figure out basic baking recipes/skills.
