The recipe looks good but is confusing. The heavy whipping cream is the 3rd ingredient and I would think should be added to the blender and mixed in. Then additional whipping cream would be whipped and added on top which should have been the last ingredient. If the 1/4 cup whipping cream is supposed to whipped for topping it should have been the last ingredient and as such put into directions at end.

The ingredients are listed according to amounts used — most to least. But I think that there is some confusion about the cream as it is listed as whipping cream in the ingredients, but whipped cream in the instructions. I definitely want to make this so I hope I get it right!
