                                    (a)  Baking; OR

                                    (b)  It can be used for cooking;

                                 Some brands of Whipping Cream are Anchor Whipping Cream, Emborg,
                                President and Shani Whipping Cream [what is written in blue at the top of

                         2.  WHEREAS, Non-Dairy Cream i.  CANNOT be used to cook; ii. it is an "artificial"
