The Dream Cake
Dream Whip is a brand of baking powder that is mixed with milk and vanilla to make a whipped dessert.
It was developed and released by the General Foods Corporation in 1957, as one of its convenience products that flooded the market by that time.
Currently, Dream Whip is owned by the Kraft Heinz company.
