moovinup, another use for some of the cream would be in baking i.e. scones and cakes. Here's a recipe from the former Trade Me Cooks that has been very popular here on the Recipes MB.

"Best Ever Cupcakes
2 eggs, cream, 1 tsp vanilla essence, 3/4c caster sugar, 1 c self raising flour. Crack eggs into a 250ml measuring jug then fill to the top with cream. Transfer to a bowl and beat with electic beaters for 1 minute. Add vanilla and sugar, beat 3 minutes. Fold in flour gently with wooden spoon. Spoon mix into 12 muffin tins lined with paper cases. Bake @ 180°C for approx, 15-20mins until light golden and cooked. Cook and ice with your favourite icing.

Edited to add another thought - is the cream fresh enough to use for desserts e.g. pannacotta, crème brulee? Thinking about the cream's freshness or otherwise - is it just that the cream is at or just past its BBF/Use By date or has it lost its fresh smell and started to smell as though it is souring? Soured cream, as long as it hasn't really gone off, is ok for scone mixtures. :-))
