Somebody please help! I need a recipe for a non perishable icing recipe like the kind some supermarkets put on their cakes that taste like cool whip. None that I have tried has had a good taste. TIA
Have you tried Pastry Pride? I think it's really good.
What is pastry pride and where would i find it? Can it be left out for several hours? Can you make flowers and such with it?
I have used Rich's Bettercreme; it is now my dh's favorite icing - not too sweet! And frosted/filled cakes can be left out on the counter for several days with no food safety issues (in most situations).
(However, it is recommended to refrigerate left-over product for future use.)

Yes, jams are always a good option. I think that as long as something is "cooked" it should be fine out. Fruits are cooked down to make jams, so they are good. I have also done a chocolate ganache and whipped it and it was just fine out. Apricot, strawberry and rapberry preserves are popular over here with my family. I have used pastry pride, but I didn't know it was able to hold without refrigeration. Has anyone worked with Frosting Pride??? Is that like more like buttercream or more like cool whip?
