Did you just take your cream halfway to butter? 

Don’t worry. We have a solution. 

You’ll want to fix this by hand. Machines sometimes just don’t have the subtlety for this.

Add a splash of fresh cream to the bowl.

And start whisking ...

... until the cream softens up and gets fluffy and light again. You’ll see it happening in the bowl.

That’s much better.

Perfect.
