The butter making part is very easy which can be done by pouring the heavy cream into the bowl of the stand mixer and adding a bit of salt in it followed by mixing it on the lowest power.
Gradually one can also increase the speed and run it for a few minutes. In the initial stage, it will seem like nothing is happening to the mixture at all but after the passage of some time, it will look like you have a giant ball of whipped cream with you.
Keep the mixture running because after some time the cream will begin to clump and will separate from the liquid.
The plumber yellow part of the cream is the butter and the white is milk, a liquid which is separated from the butter is the buttermilk. This is where the preparation gets messy.
Now, one has to cover the mixture with a towel before proceeding further otherwise the entire kitchen will be covered in buttermilk splashes. Once the butter clumps started sticking to the pedals, the mixer can be turned off.

- Spicy Mustard and Chive Butter: Combine ½ C spicy mustard with ¼ C freshly chopped chives.
- Sweet Honey Butter: Add 1 ½ – 2 Cups honey, depending on how sweet you like your butter. This will give you a more spreadable butter than the herbal blends, and it’s great on toast or breakfast biscuits.
Once the herbs of your choice are added into the blind then the mixer should be turned on at the lowest power and should be mixed just enough so that all the Herbs are thoroughly mixed with the butter.
After this, the button should be removed from the mixing bowl and the combinations which are given above will help you in shaping them into the balls or any other decorative shape using the moulds.
