Top Review by J-Lynn

I used this on a special 4-layer chocolate cake; my friend told me that it wasn't necessary to add sugar or vanilla to the whipped cream at all. Instead, the cake recipe called for mixing a whole bag of toffee pieces into 2 cups of cream for the whipped topping and using that mixture to frost the cake. However, I added the powdered sugar and vanilla anyway, because it sounded good to me. I used just a bit less than called for here. And honestly, the whipped topping lacked flavor, even with the toffee in it. Next time I will use slightly more than the called-for amount of sugar.
