I need a good whipped icing recipe. Like the ones you find at the grocery stores.
you can buy it at sams club
The closest Sam's is an hour and a half so I was wanting to make some for this weekend.
where, is it located in the store? Does it have to be from one with a bakery?
Whipped Icing (like on the cakes at Kroger)

I don't know exactly what Kroger's icing is like but I can give you a recipe that will give you that whipped frosting from a bakery texture.
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.
I don't have a recipe for whipped frosting, but I know what you're talking about. I'm a decorator at Sam's Club. *dodges thrown objects* Although I did find this website:
That's the same whipped topping we use at work. People love it. The website says that it can stay out for 5 days and it'll hold shape and all that. HOWEVER, speaking from experience, you'll want to work with the frosting while it's still very cold. Not frozen obviously, but make sure it's fresh out of the cooler. It's much more creamy and easy to spread if it's cold. And another thing, because it's so light and creamy, it can be really easy to scrape cake and get crumbs when you're smoothing it out, so be gentle! The consistency is that of cool whip.
Good luck! I promise people will love the frosting!
EDIT: kay, so I can't get a working link to that website. Just google "rich's bettercream icing". And that's not a typo there, it is bEttercream.
Krispy, have you tried this icing? Just wondering how you liked it if you have. The cake I am doing is for Wednesday. I am doing a chocolate cake and was wanting a creamy icing for it. Thanks for the help. I love being able to talk to people who have tried different ideas and are so willing to share.
I used that recipe about for whipped icing and I loved it.... very good!
i have to try this recipe...i had a slice of cake from a bakery last week and i liked the taste of the frosting
deena... The "whipped cream buttercream" frosting recipe that I posted on here is very good. A lot like the grocery store buttercreams. But I really like that it is not overly sweet. You can find it in the recipes section.
