hi yochana,
1. will there be any different if i use non-diary whip cream instead of diary?
2. may I know wat´s the purpose of adding Bicarbonate of Soda?

Hi vic,

Dairy whipped cream has got 35% fat than non-dairy but they are more delicious. The non-dairy whipped cream is more tasteless but good for decorating purpose.

Bicarbonate of Soda is a leavening powder and it reacts later than baking powder giving rise to the cake.
