    Maybe you'll see a ring of frozen cream all around the inside of the bowl; that's good news, meaning that your cream is at the right temperature.

    Continue to whip until the cream is firm enough, not too much otherwise you will make butter.

Remarks:

There's a well known little story which says that Vattel, chef to the prince of Condé, invented Chantilly cream for a party gave by his master for king Louis XIV. There is a lovely scene about it in the Roland Joffé movie "Vattel". It's well told, probably fictionalized, and quite hare-brained ("it's the sugar that makes the cream smooth").

Following the same ideas it is possible to make chocolate chantilly and foie gras chantilly.
