For raspberry mousse filling, can I substitute nondairy whipped topping or buttercream icing for the whipped cream?

Dianne - from Farmington Hills, MI

Whipped topping will not hold up much better in summer heat than whipped cream. You can certainly combine raspberries with buttercream icing to create a raspberry cream filling; it will not, however, be light and airy like mousse. Another option would be to make a non-creamy Raspberry Filling .
