Cooking cream for ice cream cakes

I wanted to make an ice cream cake (semifreddo) but the only thing available in my country are cooking creams and whipping cream, both elle and vire and UHT with 35.1 fat. Which one should i use?

I've never heard of "cooking cream" but I would recommend whipping cream.

I believed that it existed, I was just admitting that I didn't know anything about it. You could be more gracious when people are just trying to help.

From a Google search, it looks like cooking cream is a product thickened with stabilizers and emulsifiers so that it won't break. You want as pure a product as possible, so I would skip this and go for whipping cream (or heavy cream), at a 35-38% fat content.
