Hi, I live here and still find it confusing!! Heavy cream is what I call 'Double' cream. The problem is it just doesn't taste the same. I now mix half whipping (fouette) and half mascopone which in my opinion gives a better result.

thanks for your help.
There's a discussion on this on the Delia Smith forum. That's English (I mean as opposed to American) but it might be a jumping off point.
