Frequently Asked Questions:

Where to buy instant pudding mix (pudding powder or custard powder)? You can make it at home or buy the ready made in Shopee or Lazada.

Can I use Nestle All Purpose Cream? No, because all purpose cream is not the same with whpping cream or heavy cream. But you have that benefit of experimenting, it may turn out good to your liking or not at all.

Where to buy whipping cream? Whipping Cream or Heavy Creams are available in major supermarkets or baking supply stores, you can look for Anchor Heavy cream or Emborg brands.

Or alternatively you can purchase whip cream powder or whipping cream in Shopee or Lazada. You can look for brands like Ever Whipping Cream, Vivo Whipping Cream, Peotraco, Baker’s Mate, Whip It, Frosty Boy brands.

Just follow the package instructions on how to use the whipping cream powder. I tried it before and it was easy to use. You need to just dilute it in ice cold water and use an electric hand mixer to beat it until stiffed and fluffy.
