Cool Whip

This may seem like a dumb question, but in recipes that call for Cool Whip can I substitute whipped cream or is the texture too different?

Thank you, I would love to have the recipe. Yesterday I used whipped cream for the Key Lime Coconut Cake and although it was absolutely delicious, the whipped cream wasn’t stiff enough to make the filling firm enough. I probably should have added some gelatin. I look forward to your Cool Whip recipe.

kool Wip? make it?..I’d like to know how.

Thanks for the recipe for Cool Whip. I will definitely make it.
