I have a question for you guys....I have never used a whipped icing before. I see the recipes on the recipe page, but am very leary of using a whipped icing. My SIL ordered a cake with "the cool-whip" kind of icing. Is there anything special I should keep in mind when using this kind of icing. It is for an EMS employee appreciation dinner and they requested that I put the "star of life" on the cake (the blue and white EMS emblem) and I had thought about making it out of fondant. Will the fondant work on this kind of icing?
Thanks for all of the help.
If you can find Bettercreme or Pastry Pride/Frostin' Pride, it works great for covering and basic decorations.
The fondant can soften somewhat, because this kind of icing is more wet on the surface than typical buttercream.
Add the decoration at the last possible moment and it should be fine.
Thanks for the help.
