To keep the cream cold you can fill a baggie with ice and set the mixing bowl on it (if using hand mixer or whisk) or hold the baggie on the side of the bowl (stand mixer).

I chill the bowl and beaters in the freezer and I shake the carton just before beating! I don't know exactly why I shake the carton, except that my mother does it too and I learned everything from her .....

The chilled bowl and beaters should work, I
also like to whip the cream in advance, and put it in a sieve that fits over a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap until ready to use
