  3. Allow to cool.
  4. Using an electric mixer, beat cream in a large well-chilled bowl.
  5. Just before it becomes soft and billowy, slowly add the sugar and flavorings to the whipped cream at the sides of the bowl, continuing to whip as you do.
  6. Whip the cream until barely stiff.
  7. Add melted and cooled gelatin all at once to cream during whipping.
  8. Stop whipping when cream forms soft peaks.
  9. Finish beating with whisk to adjust consistency.
