I am going to be making a baby shower cake for my sister's baby shower in june, however she has requested whipped cream frosting. I have never made it or used it on a cake before. I am a buttercream girl myself. So I need a good whipped cream frosting recipe that will hold up to june weather and my question is how does it do with piping and decorating and such compared to buttercream?

Egad, June in Wisconsin with a whipped cream frosting?? Eeek! I don't have much experience w/whipped cream frostings but I think you'd probably be best using a "whipped-cream-LIKE" frosting rather than whipped cream...I have used the Wilton stabilized whipped cream and although it works nicely, I can't imagine it holding up to any kind of warm weather. I'd suggest Pastry Pride but I don't know if you can get it in the midwest.

Hoping my feeble answer can give your question a bump and maybe get you a good answer icon_wink.gif.

I tell brides "I don't do Kroger cakes. If you want a Kroger cake, it's 2 minutes down the road that way."

One friend absolutely didn't want buttercream "WHIPPED CREAM ONLY!" Since I was doing this cake for free, they decided to go with my BC icing, rather than actually pay for a cake at Kroger. Gosh darn gee, turns out they LUV'D my icing! icon_rolleyes.gificon_biggrin.gif

Debi, since you put Dream Whip into yours it might even qualify as a whipped cream icing icon_lol.gif. By the way I totally mean that in a good way! People luv your fluffy whipped icing, and one of these days I'm gonna make some icon_smile.gif. mtdk454 you might want to give Debi's recipe a try http://www.cakecentral.com/cake_recipe-6992-0-Indydebis-Crisco-Based-Buttercream-Icing.html

I agree Debi icing is very good and very light and fluffy. This would be a great icing for the baby shower cake. Try it and see what you think
