To start, place medium mixing bowl and beaters in the fridge, until ready to use.
In a small microwave-safe bowl or cup mix together unflavored powdered gelatin and water. Let it sit for about 20-30 seconds.
Microwave the mixture in 5-second increments until the gelatin is dissolved and turns into liquid.
Remove beaters and bowl from the fridge add cream and start mixing the cream on low using beaters - (alternatively these can be made in a stand mixer too). As soon as bubbles form, switch to medium speed.
Add flavoring and sugar and beat until a trail forms. If using gelatin, add it here and continue whipping.
Cream is whipped when soft peaks form. Do not over mix.
Cover and let it sit in the fridge for about 1-2 hours without gelatin and up to 48 hours with gelatin.
