I'm not sure, but I think the amounts would measure differently. Why not just whip a stick of regular butter and then measure the amount you need?

Unless the recipe specifies whipped butter, you should use regular butter. If the recipe specifies whipped, use whipped ( this is for baking, where it's important). If it's to flavor a sauce, I'd add the butter slowly up to the amount in the recipe; non-whipped butter is oilier, whipped butter has more water.

I can substitute ordinary butter for whipped, but I melted it first and one stick of butter is equal to 1/2 cup of melted butter. Thanks for the feedback. The cake was delicious. uumm
