Cool Whip Useage
I'd have to say a big no on that. Grocery store bakeries maybe. There are ways to stabilize whipped cream.
I would never use cool whip where whipped cream is called for. Cool whip is much sweeter.
Susan is right. Maybe at Denny's. I cannot imagine any self respecting baker using that stuff.
I've had some that taste like an imitation whipped topping. Has that 'stick to the roof of your mouth' consistency. It's terrible.
