I have a wedding to do in a month and the couple does not like any "sweet" icing, they prefer the ones that are more like whipped cream.
The wedding is outdoors and will be 150 cupcakes and I am in search of a recipe to make that will make them happy.
Does anyone have a recipe that may fit the boat?
Thanks

Here is a stablized version of wipped cream that can be used for decorating...It holds up pretty well OR you can use the Dr. Oetker product called Whip It. It is a wonderful stabilizer but you may or may not be able to find it in your area...You can always order it online as well...Good luck

3/4 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup hot water
1/4 cup Wilton Meringue Powder
1 lb. Confectioner's sugar
1 cup butter, softened*
1 cup white Crisco
2 tsp. vanilla extract

Place 1/2 cup water and 3/4 cup granulated sugar in small saucepan. Heat just until sugar dissolves. Do not boil. Let cool to room temperature.

When cool, put in mixing bowl and add meringue powder. Beat with beaters until stiff peaks form.

Add 1 cup butter and 2 cups confectioner's sugar and continue whipping until fluffy.

Add 1 cup Crisco and 2 tsp. vanilla and continue whipping.

Add remainder of confectioner's sugar and finish whipping.

This makes a very creamy frosting that can also be piped onto cake.

*If you want the frosting to be absolutely white, use 2 cups of Crisco and no butter and clear vanilla product.
