What to do with LOADS of whipped cream?

I whipped a gallon of cream for a party, and half (about 3 quarts whipped) is left. It's whipped with sugar an vanilla. Any recipe ideas?

Fruit fools (recipe e.g. http://www.realsimple.com...). Iced coffee with the cream. Fill profiteroles or eclairs. Banana splits.

I would make a few types of semifreddo. Lots of recipes online.

You could make a lot of cream scones (take out some of the sugar called for in a recipe), and add in whatever frozen berries or fruit butters you have on hand. I always freeze scones prior to baking, and it's lovely to have pre-shaped scones in the freezer ready for baking on a cool fall morning.

That's a great idea! Totally seasonal and bake as needed for the next couple of months. I live in the Rockies and it's been pretty cold, so scones sound great.

Happy to help! I always use Mrs. Larkin's scone recipe (https://food52.com/recipes...) as a launching point. It's a really fantastic recipe! Enjoy your chilly fall mornings (my husband is from Kittredge, CO)!

Make a chocolate roulade. Chocolate cake baked in a sheet pan. (I use a recipe from June Hemmons Hyatt, from A Piece of Cake (reprinted as The Perfect Cake). Cool it, rolled, in a towel. Spread with whipped cream and re-roll. Our favorite birthday cake.
