    I have made this same cake many times using different toppings. I usually prepare a small box of vanilla pudding and add to the whipped topping. For different occasions I have added the GF International Coffee to flavor. Last one I made for a spice cake I used Chai Latte. Let the pudding mixture set and you have a wonderful light topping.
