Help! I have an 11X17 cake to frost, making white sour cream cake and raspberry filling. I want to do a nice whipped cream icing that is sweet and light- but I want something that I can pipe shells etc... and won't break down right away. Soes anyone have a favorite recipe that they use for this? I appreciate any and all feedback on this icon_smile.gif

I use the Rich's icing. It comes in a carton and is frozen. You can whip up as much as you need. It is not sweet like buttercream and it pipes nicely.

Where do you buy the Rich's in Canada. I have never seen it here on the west coast. icon_cry.gif

I just bought a tub of Rich's prewhipped from the bakery at Sam's Club. At $22 for 15lbs, I think it was a really good buy. It will keep in the freezer for up to a year and when I want some, I just scoop it out and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. Everyone who tried it just loves it now. I was told by Rich's Co. that Sysco (sp) also has it for sale.
I didn't trust myself to whip my own ... I've turned regular whipping cream into butter icon_redface.gif !

1/2 c salted butter
1/2 c veg shortening
1# confec. Sugar
1/4 tsp. vanilla
3-4 oz heavy whipping cream
1 tbsp. meringue powder


Cream shortening and butter until fluffy
Add sugar, and cream until blended
Add salt, vanilla, and whipping cream.
Blend on low until moistened.
Beat on high until icing is fluffy
(you can add more confec. sugar or less whipping cream for stiffer consistency.)

One other option that will hold up well and tastes good, not exactly like whipped cream more like the stuff you get on a Dairy Queen cake, but the Wilton Whipped Cream Icing, It comes in a box and it is powder, all you do it add water and whip it up.

I always use bakemark trigal dorado for all my cakes is not sweet and easy to work with. You can se my pictures, all the cakes are decorated with this whip cream.

I buy mine at bakemark in texas but you can try to find it in Canada

this recipe is simply the most delicious icing ever.it tastes the vanilla ice cream. use this icing when looking for something similar to whipped cream.

ingrdients;
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup milk
1 1/2 tbsp. all- purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. pure vanilla extract
3/8 cup whipping cream
1 1/4 lbs unsalted butter, room temperature


1. make custard by heating milk and sugar until sugar crystals dissolve. add flour and salt and whisk over an ice bath until the custard has cooled, or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1/2 hour to cool the mixture. whisk in vanilla extract.

2. ppour the custard mixture into mixer bowl with a paddle attachment. add cut-up butter and add whipping cream. mix on low speed to incorporate ingredients. gradually increase speed to medium- high until the mixture begins to thicken. it takes at least 7 to 9 minutes for the butter to be completely incorporated.

3. put the icing in a plastic container with a lid and refrigerate. it will keep for 1 week in the refrigerator or freeze for 2 months.

note;
dont panic if the buttercream looks like cottage cheese. the more you beat this buttercream. the creamier it gets.

its good recipe

I didn't know this was available at Sam's Club. Is it available on the shelf or is it in the bakery department? I've never been in Sam's Club before. I guess I'll have to check it out.

Do you order this from them or buy it locally? Also how much does it cost per container. and how many lbs is that is just lists it by KG. ?

lilytexas Posted 27 Jun 2007 , 6:05am

I buy them in the bakemark wharehause it cost $31 a box and every box have 4 containers of crema chantilly. Every container weight 8lbs

rcs Posted 27 Jun 2007 , 6:26am

tinascakes, I just bought a tub of the Rich's pre-whipped at Sam's a few days ago. It comes in a 15lb. bucket and cost a little over $17. They don't keep it out front. I had to ask for it at the bakery counter.

GenGen Posted 27 Jun 2007 , 6:31am

we just have a costco up here though i'm told their the same but i doubt they have this same frosting available like that in a 15lb tub

ShayShay Posted 27 Jun 2007 , 3:37pm

I do live in Ontario and I buy my carton of icing at our local bulk food store. Unfortunatly for you it is not a chain store just a little independant business. It costs me $19.95 but I'm not sure right off hand how big the container is (I'm at work so I can't check it out)......hmmm I don't know where else you could look but it is definately available in Ontario. hth.

isakov1 Posted 27 Jun 2007 , 3:50pm

Try Nutrawhip...similar to Rich's I believe and I use it often....Just add a little flavour to it and it pipes beautifully...roses borders, whatever. Just beat it until you get the consistency that you want. Just don't leave it out uncovered too long, it will start to dry out but if you keep it covered (like in cake box or something then it keeps really well.)

You can find Nutrawhip in the refrigerated section at most grocery stores, they have regular and light. I use the light a lot and it works great.

SugarBakers05 Posted 27 Jun 2007 , 5:19pm

Sounds great! so if I use the nutriwhip, do i add confectioners sugar to it too, or just add flavor, and ice the cake? i'm wondering how many containers to ice an 11X17 cake?

isakov1 Posted 27 Jun 2007 , 5:37pm

Some people would add the conf sugar to it, its not very sweet, try it to taste, you can add it at any time without ruining it. I think that 1 box makes about 6.5 cups of icing so the amount you need will depend on how thick you ice the cake and what type of decoration you're putting on it. Hope this helps!

SugarBakers05 Posted 27 Jun 2007 , 5:44pm

Really! That's great! I'm going to try it out tonight, thanks again : )

isakov1 Posted 27 Jun 2007 , 5:55pm

no problem icon_smile.gif Post a pic when it's done. I have one but I need to get it onto my computer.

tinascakes Posted 28 Jun 2007 , 12:47pm

Rcs, thanks. I have a Sam's Club about 45 minutes from me. I'll have to check it out. Do you need a membership to shop there?

Do you ever make it over the border into Washington? I get mine at Cash & Carry. There's one in Bellingham:

This sounds amazing. I am always looking for a whipped icing recipe. All of the ones I have tried fall short in some way. (Either taste or consistency) I buy the tub from Sams but it just isn't my type of frosting. I will have to try this one!
