National Whipped Cream Day - January 5th
January 5th is Whipped Cream Day! When you whisk air into cream (containing 30% fat), you get a "soft solid" froth that can be used to top a variety of desserts or drinks. However, if you over mix the cream, you will end up with homemade butter, which is not nearly as tasty on hot chocolate... or a coffee concoction better than anything you'll find at that ubiquitous shop with the mermaid logo.
Café du Mocha: Chicory coffee with cream and instant hot cocoa, topped with whipped cream and chocolate syrup.
