Can I Use Homemade Whipped Cream

No- Homemade whipped cream is so delicious! However, since this recipe needs to be refrigerated at least 4 hours and up to 3 days, homemade whipped cream would become runny and not keep its shape.

It is recommended to use Cool Whip or other whipped topping for this recipe as those are more stable.
