Can you put whipped cream on a cake?

It’s a dumb question, but I made as couple of vanilla cakes and i want to ice the top of them with whipped cream.

I've done so many times! If you want it to hold up a bit better, I would definitely stabilize it with some gelatin:

Yes, you can ice a cake with whipped cream. Here's a recipe for chiffon cake with whipped cream frosting:

My understanding is that whipped cream is not very stable, but the recipe above says it lasts for a day. Either way, I think cakes finished with whipped cream should be eaten quickly.
