Are Cool Whip and whipped cream the same?

Comparing Cool Whip and Whipped cream can be difficult as they serve the same purpose in a recipe. But the difference is akin to chalk and cheese. If there is a need for a lower fat in cream then go for Cool Whip. If there is no such need or if the recipe uses a natural product go for Whipped Cream. The similarity is that they are light and fluffy so they can be the perfect topping for cakes and ice creams.

For example chocolate for birthdays, red velvet cookies special for Christmas or vanilla for an anniversary. As they are easy to make they save up a lot of time for the social day.

What cake mix should be used?

There are many cake mixes in the market so there can be confusion about which one to use. The famous ones are Duncan Hines and Betty Crocker. If that doesn’t work local brands can be used too. But it is much better to use a brand that is already much used before.
