Test Kitchen: Whipped topping is a nondairy ingredient that resembles heavy whipping cream after it’s whipped. In most recipes, sweetened heavy whipping cream may be substituted for whipped topping, but you may notice differences in texture. To make sweetened whipped cream, beat 1 cup heavy whipping cream until it begins to thicken. Add 3 Tbsp. confectioners’ sugar and 1/2 tsp. vanilla; beat until soft or until soft peaks form.
