Can I decorate a cake with whipped frosting just as well as buttercream? I've never used anything but buttercream. And, what's the best recipe for whipped frosting? I need to color, pipe, etc. with this icing, so I need it to have pretty close to the same consistency as buttercream. I don't LIKE whipped, which is why I always use buttercream, but I'm making a strawberry daiquiri cake and I think it'd taste better with whipped than bc. Thanks fr any help.
I'd like to know as well...
I've heard of the recipes for stabilized whipped cream- but can this pipe and decorate a full cake?
so I need it to have pretty close to the same consistency as buttercream.
The difference between whipped and American b/c IS the consistency.
A suitable compromise might be a whipped b/c (heavier than whipped but smoother than traditional American b/c.
SugarShack's recipe is quite popular:
