What is thickened cream? Is it what we call whipping cream?

Hi Ladies, FIZZY LEMONADE is when the bottle/can is opened it still has

a fizz, this means that it hasn`t gone flat and lost its effervescents. I am sure Sprite could be used without any problem. Hope you enjoy.

THICKENED CREAM: Not sure what you call this in USA but here in Australia

we purchase a Thickened Cream or a Whipping Cream. I would say you could use the Whipping Cream but possibly not whip just use straight from container. This should work OK. Enjoy.
