Mix them together with an electiric mixer until they are combined well & light in color. A technical def. is to beat a food rapidly so you add air to it. I hope this helps some!

Sweetie30, I'm sorry I gave you the wrong def. I was looking at whip instead of cream. Here is the def, for cream- To mix one or more foods together until they are creamy & soft. Again I am sorry for the mistake! :oops:

i use the 'spreadable' rule for creaming butter and sugar, et al. when it gets to a consistency that would let me spread it on toast or something, i'm there.
