Thickened cream, also known as pouring cream, contains 18% of milk within its constituents. This cream is mostly used in cakes and pastries toppings. But it is only used in confectionery as it takes a lot of time to be prepared. This cream originated in Australia, and some ingredients, like gelatin, gum, and other thickening agents, were added to prevent separation and make it easier to whip. Thickened cream does not have a large amount of milk and has a smoother surface. This cream can be added to ganache, panna cotta, and as a dessert topping. It can also give soups and pasta a rich, creamy flavor. Some people also like adding a little thickened cream into their coffee to increase its richness.
