    Cream sugar, & butter VERY WELL .. Then add sweet milk. According to the Dairy Council of Wisconsin, the terms "sweet milk" and "sweet cream" were used to differentiate these items from cultured products like buttermilk and sour cream. When a recipe calls for sweet milk, it is referring to whole milk. When a recipe calls for sweet cream, it is referring to half-and-half cream or whipping cream, depending on the recipe. ~
