      • I wish you had answered the question. In the US, I don’t use packages of baking powder or whipping cream.
        Your recipe looks delicious!

        • Dear Della,

          I’m so sorry for the inconvenience. I never saw your comment. Please be informed that referred 1 package of baking powder is 10 gr. (1 1/2 teaspoon) You can find whipped cream in bottle to my knowledges but if you can’t, you can whip 200 ml. full fat heavy cream with 1/2 cup powdered sugar to make a tasty whipping cream.
          I hope this would be helpful to you.

  • When you say 1 “package” baking powder and 2 “package” whipping cream, what is the measurement of a “package” in U.S. conversion? Many thanks.
