thanks for posting this, my mom always did this, but I couldn't find that she had written it down any where, I usually just add dream whip to the cream to help stabilize it.

Sandy Mika, did that work, adding the "dream whip'? I used to use dream whip when I was a kid. I never thought of using it in whipped cream.
