I've done it. It works fine, but I wouldn't use all that
much sugar myself, I'd use maybe a quarter cup, and I'd use
confectioner's sugar. I don't think I've ever used the
lemon juice, but I think it would be a good idea. I added a
teaspoon of vanilla, along with the lemon juice.
This doesn't "hold" well, you have to use it right away.
It's not whipped heavy cream with that wonderful whipped
heavy cream *richness*, but it's a very acceptable whipped
topping. I like it.
