Whipping cream and heavy cream are the same thing, just sometimes labeled different. You use whipping (or heavy) cream to make whipped cream.

I do not know the specifics on how to make a mirror glaze but this instructable does a good job explaining it:


Sour cream is fermented cream that live cultures are added to. Heavy cream is the fat content of milk.
