Supposedly, but it's never quite the same.

What about whipping cream that hasn't been whipped?

Whipping cream that hadn't been whipped - yes.

If it has, it might turn back to a loose liquids state, unless you've whipped it to very firm peaks?

Partially whipped - pack in rigid containers, leaving 2.5cm in headspace. Remove the air, seal. label and freeze. Store for up to 3 months.

Fully whipped - Pipe as decorations on the inside of the lid of a rigid container. Open-freeze until firm then press the base on to cover. Seal firmly, label very clearly and freeze, lid-side down. Store for up to 3 months.

Cream with a fat content over 40% freezes well. Do not try to freeze single cream or reduced fat varities.

Frozen cream decorations should be put in place while still frozen then put in the fridge to thaw. Defrost all other cream in the fridge overnight and use as usual.

HTH.

I live in the US and you can buy frozen whipped cream.

In fact, it's harder to find in it's natural state.
