Hello everyone. I've looking for a stable whipping cream and I've just been told that Sure Whip is available here. It's actually non-dairy and it's supposed to hold really well and is quite versatile. I've also been told that this type of whipping cream does not to be heated up if you're using it in a whipped ganache recipe (you're supposed to melt the chocolate and you whip it with the cream once the chocolate has cooled and saves you time of refrigerating it prior, etc.). Any thoughts?

I've never seen a recipe for traditional ganache where the cream isn't heated...

Here's a recipe for chocolate ganache using Rich's Bettercreme (which is heated):

Thanks JanH... I agree, all the recipes I've used/seen requires heating heavy cream. I live in Kuwait and we have limited resources here. Had a friend/chef pass by last night and he's the one that suggested Sure Whip and says when he's making 'whipped' chocolate ganache he uses this brand. He also told me that I'll just need to melt the chocolate and add to the cream and whip it up; I don't have to refrigerate several hours/overnight before whipping. I looked up the product description on the company site and it doesnt mention if this cream can be heated up. I use a whipped cream base in a lot of my fillings (they love whipped cream here and prefer it to buttercreams). Guess I'll have to go buy me some Sure Whip and experiment!
