Chestnut paste is heavy, whipped cream is light. Put one on top of the other in any quantity and the result will be…this. Hm…this is going to mean a re-think of the recipe since I don’t much care for the idea of a giant, shambling mound of chestnut paste on a base. I like chestnut paste, just not THAT much. Also, after all that hassle I ended up receiving chestnut spread in the mail, not chestnut paste, and there’s a difference. Man, my projects are getting the best of me in the dog days of summer, aren’t they?
