I wanted to know what is it and where to get it. How does it taste?

It's a powder that you can mix with milk to make whipped topping. There are some cake recipes that call for it.

To me, the best use for it is in Indydebi's Crisco-Based Buttercream (you can find the recipe on this website).

They have it in the baking aisle at the grocery store, usually near the gelatin or near the cake mixes depending on the store. It's a little pricey...I pay almost 4 dollars for 4 packets of it.

It is basically a powdered whipped cream mix. I have used it in my cake batters and in my buttercream. It just kinda makes everything taste a little better without actually making it an entirely different flavor. Hope that makes sense.

Dream Whip is a powdered whipped topping mix, available in grocery stores.
It is made by Kraft Foods, the same company that makes Jell-o, and is located next to the Jell-o in the store.

I use at least two cases a month of it. I add one envelope to every cake mix and add about 1 envelope (+/-) for every 4 lbs of powdered sugar in my icing.

i just used it this past weekend to make chocolate mousse for a filling. That's one of the major ways I use it, as a filling in some way shape or form.

Not to hijack the thread or anything, sorry you can PM me if you want, but is this the same thing as Bettercream?

No, I don't believe so

I took the inspiration from Indydebi's crisco based icing and used Dreamwhip in my butter cream icing. (I don't care for the taste of all crisco based icing). I have it listed in the recipe section and it's called doctored butter cream dream. It is so good and I think it's the dream whip that adds that "something" to it. I could (and sometimes do..lol) eat it with a spoon!!! YUM!!

lol ok guys wishful thinking. I dont think I can get bettcreme around here so I was hoping for an alternative.

If you use the dream whip in icing does that need to be refriderated? Or is that only if you add the milk to it?

I use dream whip AND milk in my icing and I never refrigerate it.

And just to be sure you know, you don't make the Dream Whip into whipped topping when you add it to the cake/icing. You just pour the powder itself into the batter/icing.

No, it doesn't need to be refrigerated.

I use Dream Whip in IndyDebi's buttercream! It's so good! It's the only thing that I've ever used it in though. I bet it would be really good in other things as well. The box shows a chocolate mousse on the outside. I love chocolate mousse...so who knows. Maybe I'll give it a whirl!
