I'VE HAD several queries lately as to whether Dream Whip is still available in supermarkets. Dream Whip, a shelf-stable whipped topping mix, is alive and well and I found it in several supermarkets, including ShopRite and Pathmark. Introduced in 1957, Dream Whip was the precursor to Cool Whip, a frozen dairy topping found in supermarket freezers since 1967.
On May 24, Edna McCorry requested a recipe for Dream Cake made with Dream Whip. The cake has been a favorite with home bakers for many years. Peggy Cuccio of Farmingdale enclosed a copy of a Dream Whip leaflet dated 1974 which included this recipe and a variety of others. Kathleen Briscoe of Oak Beach sent in a copy clipped from Ladies' Home Journal, but can't remember how long ago she cut it out. Jeanne D. Lipthay of Massapequa Park ran across the recipe while looking for a mock apple pie recipe and found it in the bottom of a shoe box.
The recipe from Rose Lo Piccolo of Glen Cove is slightly different- a Dream pudding cake: To make it, combine 1 cup water (if using devil's food cake, increase water to 1 1/4 cups), 1 envelope Dream Whip, 1 package cake mix, 3 eggs, 1/4 cup vegetable oil and 1 package Jell-O pudding and beat 4 minutes at medium speed. Baking times and pan sizes are the same as for Dream Cake above.
