    If you use Cool Whip, the whipped cream on top of the trifle will not look as pretty as the real whipped cream.  So, you could just do the real whipped cream on top for the swirls.  Any way you do it will be fine though. :)
    Also, I said to add the cookies before you serve.  You can also make the whipped cream for the whipped cream swirls on top at the time as well.  I found doing it later, I could cover my trifle much easier with saran wrap.  It's not necessary to add saran wrap or seal if you add your swirls as the directions call out, but if you have any leftover, you need to make sure it's sealed or covered with saran wrap. :)
