Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I had the same question and my feeling is yes on both questions. The amount of graham cracker mixture would lead me to believe that there would be plenty to put thin crusts in the pan before adding the salad. The second clue is that anytime you fold something in it usually means that it is whipped, it is folded so you don't collapse it.

It is not clear, but the recipe says to "fold" in the whipping cream. The only reason to "fold" in whipping cream is if it was whipped. You can't really fold in cream, which is what it is unwhipped. Also, I do believe the graham cracker mixture isboth a crust and a topping. I don't think you can go wrong assuming this!

Yes, does whipping cream need to be whipped? Also do you make a crust with some of the crumbs? It says in the last of instructions to put "remaining crumbs" over salad. Thanks.

Should the whipping cream be whipped?
