Chill your mixing bowl and beaters in the freezer for 10 minutes.
Place the cream, powdered sugar and vanilla in a mixer bowl. Using a hand mixer or stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat on medium-high speed until it is has thickened and soft peaks form (about 3-5 minutes). Periodically scrape down the sides of the bowl. Refrigerate or use immediately. If refrigerating, the whipped cream might deflate slightly over time. If necessary, beat it briefly right before serving.
Make the whipped cream as directed then stir in the following ingredients until combined.
Espresso/Coffee: 1 teaspoon espresso powder
Cinnamon: 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Salted Caramel: 2 tablespoons salted caramel sauce
Peppermint: 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract (or more to taste)
Lemon: 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
Peanut Butter: 2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
Berry: 2 tablespoons berry jam
Maple: 1 tablespoon maple syrup plus 1/4 teaspoon maple extract
Chocolate: 2-3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (add this at the beginning, when you mix the cream, powdered sugar and vanilla extract). Beat until soft peaks form.
