    Heavy cream doubles in volume when it is whipped.

    You are trying to equate weight measurements with volume measurements....it doesn't work.

    2 cups of liquid whipping cream = 16 ounces = 1 pint.

    Depending on the milkfat content of the whipping cream, the volume doubles (or almost triples) when whipped, but the weight is still 16 ounces unless you are adding sugar or other ingredients to the cream before whipping it.

    Actually, fluid ounces are a volume measurement, like cups and pints. 2 cups of cream don't weigh 16 ounces, they are 16 fluid ounces in volume. This confuses a lot of people.

    Reddi-wip is already whipped, so we need to know what recipe is being used in order to know if it can be substituted or not.

    Eight fluid ounces of heavy cream weighs 8.4 ounces, but knowing that doesn't help me a bit! icon_lol.gif

    If the recipe calls for "2 cups of heavy cream, whipped," you will need 4 cups of Redi-Whip or Cool Whip - as long as it's calling for SWEETENED whipped cream. If it needs liquid heavy cream, or if it needs plain whipped cream (for a fish mousse, for instance), then you can't use the sweetened artificial goop.

    To be fair, Reddi-Wip is real stabilized whipped cream.
