Has anyone ever used Dream Whip in lieu of Rich's bettercreme or Frostin' Pride??? It says that you can use whole non-dairy milk mixed with the packet as long as the milk is made the day before (I guess so that it's chilled)...

Dream whip mixed according to the package is basically like cool whip.

I'm not sure what whole non-dairy milk is...

Here are the basic directions:
(1/2 cup milk and 1/2 tsp. vanilla)

Rich's Bettercreme is a shelf stable whipped frosting/filling that's pretty sturdy. Dream Whip requires constant refrigeration (except when being served) and is a soft whipped topping.

I would never substitute Dream Whip for Rich's Bettercreme because the performance would be so much different. And Dream Whip isn't cheap to use either!

I was thinking the same thing, Jan.

I googled "whole non-dairy milk" and found:

plain non-dairy milk (soy, nut, rice, oat, or mixed grain milk)

I can see this being able to make a non-dairy Dream Whip, but again, it definitely would NOT act the same way as Bettercreme.

Where would one find dream whip? I've been looking for it, and have searched the baking aisle with no luck. TIA!

Yup!!!! Indys recipe, it rocks!!! lol...and yes its in Walmart sometimes you need to look for it, for me it was up high on the top shelf, and Im 4'9 1/2" lets not forget the 1/2....and I had to get a basket and move it close by, and stand on it, and even then...was a chore.

I have used Indydebi's recipe with great success! (Thanks Deb thumbs_up.gif ). I always find it in Pathmark in the baking needs aisle near the jello.

you can also google it and get it from ebay or other online sites if you can't find it in the store.

Iamelis, I found Dream Whip in my local supermarket.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I appreciate it. I wasn't sure how it would work, and now I don't think it would work so well! Oh, and I am assuming that Non-Dairy whole milk would be the powered milk that they have on the shelf, but thw whole milk version and not the skim??? Thanks.

Powdered milk is usually non-fat (but it's definitely NOT non-dairy).

Non-dairy whole milks are what I consider milk substitutes:

Almond milk
Coconut milk
Rice milk
Soy milk

Hello Can anyone please tell me where to find this Riches bettercream or frosting pride. .What grocery stores sell this? Thank you very much.

Grocery stores don't normally sell Rich's Bettercreme, although I've read where a few cake decorating stores do.

You can Google Bettercreme and order it online, or you can purchase prewhipped buckets from Sam's Clubs with bakery departments, or you can purchase the liquid cartons at GFS (Gordon Food Service).

In addition to what Jan said, where you can find Rich's Bettercreme or Pastry Pride depends a lot upon where you live.
Out here in Southern California, this is what I can find:
Pastry Pride - found at Smart & Final
Frostin' Pride - found at Smart & Final
Rich's Bettercreme - CHOCOLATE ONLY - found at Smart & Final
Rich's Bettercreme - vanilla - A&J Cake and Candy Supply, Glendora
Rich's Whip N Ice aka Whipped Icing Base - Cake Palace, Carson (this product is basically Bettercreme with a 4-hour shelf life after whipping)

I also found Pastry Pride at one cake shop in Santa Ana, I forget the name.

The point of the above is not to bore you with information if you do not live in SoCal...it's to point out that even here, near the thriving metropolis of Los Angeles California, the stuff is very hard to find. I have searched a 50 mile radius and the above is all I could come up with.

Hopefully this is all meaningless info and you live near a GFS icon_biggrin.gif

Dream Whip.... took me a while to find it... because it's one of those items in a supermarket that they don't carry a lot of and it's like "hidden" in a corner...
I went to Acme and they had it in the baking aisle... by the Jello next to the unflavored Gelatin... u culd barely see it though... so don't discourage... just look really good and if not, then ASK...

Good Luck!

It's a thin white box, btw. I didn't want anyone running around looking for a tub of frosting or something similar. Bigger than a pudding box by a bunch, smaller than a cake mix box by a bit.

Hi. I actually had asked that question a different time...Apparently, you cannot find it in grocery stores. People told me that you can only find them in some cake supply places and Sam's may also have it. If you can get it anywhere else, I would also be interested in knowing....
