Pastry Pride is a commercial whipped icing. It comes frozen in quarts. you thaw it, and whip into a whipped cream-like icing. It is possible to pipe some flowers and most decorations.

Frostin' Pride is similar, but whips to a more firm texture.

Combining one of the whipped icing, with your favorite shortening based buttercream gives you a great, light, icing suitable for most decorations.

It's a whip cream frosting that comes in liquid form, in a quart size carton. It's usually frozen, you thaw it out when you're ready to use.

Smart and Final

Rumor is that Sam's club uses the Rich's Bettercreme (same thing basically) and that is one of the things I love about Sam's you can buy anything they use. So I go to the bakery counter and ask for a bulk of cardboard cake boards and they sell them to me!! If you see the packaging being used in the bakery section then you can buy a bulk of it! Same for the ingredients, you can buy a case of frozen cake blanks, their frosting, etc...

In Northern California I can only find it at Smart & Final or Cash & Carry, although I heard recently that Costco is now carrying it, but it large containers. I prefer the 1 quart and keep an extra in the freezer at all times. No cake supply outlet in our area carries it.

You could look in the internet, I'm sure someone would ship it.

Don't over buy at first. I had the cake store talk me into it and I bought two and hated it.

Wow Janette, that's the first time I have heard someone say that. What was it about it you didn't like, and how did you use it? I especially like it as a Bavarian filling but have used it to ice a cake with strawberries and it was delicious.

I just whipped it and put it on the cake like frosting. It was a while ago but if I remember it was like putting cool whip on the cake.

It is very similar to Cool Whip, just more stable and I think better tasting. But if you don't care for Cool Whip you may not care for Pastry Pride either. The Bavarian filling made with Pastry Pride is really good, and can be flavored with any extract or liquere to compliment the cake. You might like to try it sometime.

I've never used Pastry Pride to frost the outside of a cake, but I LOVE it to use as a filling. You can add flavors to it and since it's non-dairy, it doesn't have to be refrigerated like whipped cream. I use Pastry Pride instead of cream for the Cookies & Cream filling and it's great!

May be a dumb question, but can you add pureed (sp?) fruit to Pastry/frostin pride for a filling?
