DIY Butter Fail

I just tried to make my own butter and it looks like it was a total fail. Please perform an autopsy with me!

Bought a tub of double cream/heavy whipping cream (47% fat), using this recipe
put it in a food processor, whizzed away for AGES and nothing happened...finally, instead of separating, the whole thing turned wet and yellow.
I think that because I used one of those hand bamix thingies with a processor attachment rather than a processor, the processor unit warmed up and melted the butter. That's what I'm assuming. Can you confirm that this is what happened?
Also, now I have what looks to be melted butter. What on earth can I do with it? Refrigerate? Save? Throw out?
