To make ambrosia salad, place 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream and 1 tablespoon of sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer. Use the stand mixer���s whisk attachment to whip the cream until stiff peaks form. Add 4 ounces of sour cream to the mixture, and whisk again to combine.
Add 3 cups of mini marshmallows, 1 cup of Clementine orange segments, and 1 cup each of chopped fresh pineapple, freshly grated coconut and chopped toasted pecans. Also add 1/2 cup of drained maraschino cherries. Stir well to combine all of the ingredients, and then transfer the mixture to a glass serving bowl. Cover the bowl, and refrigerate it for at least two hours prior to serving.
