I want to try this frosting recipe, 'Dream Whip Buttercream Icing', (found on CC) but the recipe calls for a 'buttercream base'.
In my short repertorie of cakery (notice newbie) I need a clearer understanding of what the recipe originator meant. Any ideas?
If anyone has tested this recipe and/or has something to share that will enlighten me I would appreciate it.
Have your own recipe for a whipped frosting that can stand up to some piping? I'd gladly give it a try.
I have a cake waiting in the wings and a family chomping at the bit.
If I don't get it covered soon they will not hesitate to dig in.
I need the decorating practice, but if I decorated a dummy cake the troops would be irritated.
Texas heat and an irritated family is a bad combination, please don't make me go there.
Buttercream base is a hard to find product for most.

Don't know if you could successfully substitute icing base, i.e. either Brite White or Angel White Icing base. There is also a chocolate fudge icing base.
The Angel White & chocolate icing bases are available online....
If you can buy in bulk National Flavors is quite reasonable:

Your research and sharing has been much appreciated.
