Here in the States, we have Reddi-Whip, whipped cream in a compressed can.
Could you do the same with the axe? It might be even more explosive to see the cream splatter.  (Also, shaving cream. Compare and contrast.)

Thought about giving Batgirl a win just this once, but, well, she doesn’t currently have her own prime-time TV show. Sorry Babs!
