Place a large glass or metal mixing bowl and beater blades of a hand mixer in the freezer for 5 minutes or the fridge for 15 minutes.
Pour cream into chilled bowl, add sugar, and vanilla if using.
Whip mixture on medium-low speed until thickened slightly, about 1 minute.
Use right away or store in refrigerator in an airtight container using within a couple of hours for the fluffiest results.
