I would divide it and freeze it. You can freeze and reuse after giving it a hefty shake to re-emulsify. It will be as good as fresh. good reading about this here: Can I Freeze Cream? - David Lebovitz

Forget love... I'd rather fall in chocolate!

Help me with ideas.

Ice cream (no need to use eggs if you are working with soft fruit such as strawberries). Not only yummy but saves and stores the cream.

You can also pipe whipped cream decorations onto a baking sheet lined with non-stick parchment and freeze them. Store in Freezer in a box and use to decorate cakes, trifles, etc., placing them while still frozen and allowing to thaw in situe.

Be careful whipping it as it can go to butter very quickly. (Still not wasted though)

Don’t look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.
