Can heavy whipping cream that's been heated be cooled and whipped?

SShabazz | May 17, 2011 11:22 PM

One of my besties wants her birthday cupcakes with "a hint of lavender" flavor, so I want to infuse the heavy whipping cream using dried culinary lavender. Has anyone ever done this? I was thinking of cold infusing in the fridge for a day or so, but will this give it a noticeable lavender flavor? Then I thought to heat the cream and lavender gently to release the oils into the cream, but will the cream whip to stiff peaks after that (of course I will let it cool and then get it cold in the fridge before whipping)? Is there any reason why heavy cream that's been heated wont whip well after it is cold again? Thnx
