    Hi.. In the recipe you have 1/2 cup sugar when making the whipped cream listed for the ingredients. Then, down in the instructions for making the whipped cream you have 3/4 cup sugar listed when making. Is it 1/2 or 3/4

    Not sure how much sugar to put in whip cream?

    Excited to try this. Thanks
