For the cream, you want a thinner texture than normal whipped cream that can stand up in peaks.  You can get this easily by just shaking the cream with a little sugar in a pint mason jar with a mixing ball.  There are balls sold for this purpose or you can use any plastic ball or a couple of dice.  This agitates the cream into what amounts to a soupy latte foam consistency.  It is not so thick that it can hold its shape, but it is light enough to float on the coffee.
