What is "1 whole can of whipped cream"? Is it a tub of cool whip 8 or 12 ozs.? A can of "Redi whip"? I've been cooking for over 50 years and have never heard of this.

Like to try this recipe but can you tell me how much whipped cream is in 1 whole can. I cannot buy cans of whipped cream where I am, I have to whip the whipping cream myself. Thank you, the children will love this recipe.
