How far in advance can I whip cream?

I always find it lasts several days in the fridge but did not know if there was some rule of thumb related to fluff and freshness.

I have whipped cream a couple hours in advance, cover and refridgerate. I used a wisk to reconstitute if it gets a bit watery.
Even overnite if necessary.

I think it's best freshly whipped, but if you need to whip it in advance, add some gelatin (that's been rehydrated) to stabilize it. We use gelatin to stabilize items w/ whipped cream in the bakery where I work.

If you use real heavy cream, it can be whipped a day ahead. It holds it's shape nicely if you whip it stiff enough. Just be sure to cover it well and refridgerate. I never add anything, such as flavoring, until right before I use it. You can just lightly fold your flavoring in and it's good to go!
