Put heavy cream into a large mixing bowl. Insert the chef’s whisk into the Cuisinart® Hand Mixer. Start whipping cream on speed 3, gradually increasing to speed 7 for about one minute so that the cream has some body. Add the sifted sugar and vanilla and continue to whip on speed 7 until cream holds stiff peaks, about 1½ minutes.
Cocoa Whipped Cream: Add 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa to recipe above with the sugar.
Grand Marnier: Add 3 tablespoons of Grand Marnier to recipe above with the cream.
