Want to make a "Dessert Taco Bar"? Just serve these folded, along with the fixins, plus any others you can think of (raspberries, chocolate chips, candied pecans), and let your guests go nuts!

Step 4: Make the Whipped Cream

Add the heavy cream, powdered sugar and vanilla to a bowl. Beat on high until light and fluffy.
