Does any one know a whipped icing recipe like the kind Bakeries use. I'm a beginner and I've learned Buttercream, but it's too rich. I prefer whipped.

Most commercial bakeries used either Rich's Bettercreme or Pastry Pride for their whipped icing.

Unfortunately, there is no way to duplicate this recipe at home. But you can purchase one or the other of these products either locally or online.

Wilton also sells packages of "whipped icing" but it doesn't make much (4 cups) and can get rather pricey if frosting a large cake:
