Looks delicious. I believe it can be called "Crème Chantilly", since you added sugar. Doesn't that sound snazzier than whipped cream?

You can use a Bigger spoon if you have whip cream and more layers. Cream chantilly sounds more elegant and might be served in little dessert dishes.

I thought Crème Chantilly was vanilla whipped cream.

It can be. It needs some kind of flavouring and according to Joy of Cooking, sugar counts.

That brings back memories. My mom used to layer sour cream to which a bit of vanilla was added, brown sugar, and sliced strawberries. Totally not good for you, but the brown sugar would melt...so good. When a friend immigrated from the Czech Republic to Canada, her dad fell in love with sour cream...he'd eat it like ice cream.
