Sprinkle with 2 teaspoons sugar.
Bake until biscuits are golden and tester inserted into biscuit comes out clean, about 20 minutes.
Transfer to rack. (Can be made 8 hours ahead. Cool. Store airtight at room temperature.)

Add butter. Stir until butter melts. Cool slightly.
Using electric mixer, beat cream and powdered sugar in large bowl until stiff peaks form. Using serrated knife, slice off top 1/3 of biscuits.
Transfer biscuit bottoms to plates. Spoon half of plum mixture over biscuits. Spoon whipped cream atop plum mixture. Spoon remaining plum mixture atop cream, dividing equally.
