Can you filter single cream?

I made elderflower cordial last week, and in a flash of demented inspiration decided to try steeping the flowers in cream to flavour a dessert. Why didn't I just use the cordial?hmm Now, of course, the cream is full of tiny bugs. Normally that's not an issue - I just filter the water through a paper towel. But will single cream filter through a paper towel?

Do you mean 'bugs' (if so 🤮), or 'bits'? If the latter I'd try a nylon sieve.

Definitely bugs grin I leave the flowers face down on a white plate, the bugs creep out onto the plate and then get washed away to their doooom. If I don't get them all out this way, I just filter them out afterwards. They are far too small to be caught by a sieve.
