    Most whipped toppings are concoctions of sugar, stabilizers, and some substance approximating cream. They come in canisters or freezer containers.

    Here's the easy way to do it and get a delicious product (whipped toppings are super-sweet and not very enjoyable, but real whipped cream is great):

    Buy a small container of cream (the heaviest you can - in the US, we call it "whipping cream", as opposed to "half-n-half," which is 50% milk and 50% cream). Add a splash of vanilla extract and four teaspoonfuls of powdered sugar. Chill the mixer bowl and beater first. Pour all ingredients in the mixer and whip until stiff peaks form.

    Whipped Topping

    it is what we sell as "cool whip" ... not sure if you have it or not ... It is similar to whipped cream, except it is not real cream ... it stays whipped and fluffy longer - comes in a tub - check out

    this is their webpage http://www.kraftbrands.com/coolwhip

    shows pic of container and product ... it really does not flatten for long time - has somewhat different flavor due to being non-dairy. Works great for lactose intolerance. Usually can substitute whipped cream if your gonna use right away, but like I said, we use it to keep stuff fluffy ... (I would think it would be in UK too - not new - very old product) -

    would say Cool Whip as brand name or Non-Dairy Whipped Topping for any other brand of this product.

    It is either heavy whipping cream which is whipped with an mixer with sugar added or it is an oil which is also whopped in a mixer and with sugar added, I personally don't like the oil based, but I do like whipped cream on desserts.

    I don't know what the equivalent is in the UK, but over here it is called "Cool Whip" or "Dream Whip". It's a non-dairy alternative to whipped cream.

    Either whipped fresh cream or edible oil whipped 'cream', both of which you can find in the dairy section of the supermarket.
