Would it work if I put store bought custard and tried whipping using a kenwood or something?

Why do you want to? You could try mixing it with whipped cream to make the texture 'lighter' if that would help?

If you are wanting it for filling you can buy the pauls thick custard,it's very nice

I would use instant custard powder in some milk (way more custard then the milk needs) and then add that to some cream and whip it all together.

I have no idea what whipped custard is! And I LOVE custard! Please educate me!
As PPs said, if it's for a filling type thing I'd make custard (egg custard, it really is far superior to the powdered stuff) and then fold it through whipped cream once cold. Or just make it really thick.
ETA: Make the custard really thick, not make the custard really think...

I tend to teach my custard a lesson with my spoon. Going into my mouth. It never misbehaves again!

You should be able to make it with cream and whip it.
When i make whipped ganache, i use 1 cup cream + 1/3 cup chocolate. Melt it together and as it cools i beat it and it goes thick so the cream still has whatever properties it needs to whip even though its been heated.
I would make a runny custard with cream base and then when cool whip it.
ETA - Bakeries use Custard Cream for Eclairs - it would be a similar process http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/12572/choc...h+custard+cream
If you have store bought custard that you are looking to do something with, you could try warming it and adding gelatine and making a cheats Creme Caramel with Caramel Sauce...
Mum use to do this with a big tablespoon of Carmel icecream topping in a cup, topped with the warmed Custard/jelly mix and set in the fridge.

Thanks ladies. I just have leftover custard and thought whipping it would besomething different.
Might just mix it with whipped cream. And maybe some topping. That should do.
