  1.   The heavy cream whips best if the bowl and wire whisk (affiliate link) have been chilled in the refrigerator for 15 minutes.   
  2.   Be sure to closely watch the cream when it is in the mixer.  It can easily turn into butter if it is over whipped.  
  3.   The dessert can be made ahead of time.  Chill the topping.  When you are ready to serve, distribute the strawberries in serving dishes and then top with chilled cream.
