Ok i have no idea what dream whip is anybody Thanks
It's a powdered whipped topping. You add milk and whip it for a few minutes to make whipped cream to put on top of pies, cakes, jello's, etc.
When used in icing, you just throw it in in the powdered form.
Crisco Sticks: You guys should do a cost comparison on those sticks! THey might be easier, but you're paying out the wha-zoo for the convenience! If you're doing any kind of volume at all, it's way worth your while to measure it. My cost analysis was something like $0.53/cup for sticks .... $0.08/cup for crisco bought at sam's.
Paint me lazy but I built a charge of $1.75 per stick into my cost sheet for the premeasured sticks. I like things qick and easy. Measuring Crisco out into cups is a huge pain in my rear.
