Hi, new here! I am used to decorating with buttercream icing. I start work at a restaurant next week that uses pre-whipped bettercream. I have no experience with this!
How does it compare to buttercream for decorating?
I have heard so much about overwhipping, its making me nervous, I have no idea how to use this stuff! Any advice would be welcome!
I have not used the prewhipped - nor have I used that brand but I have used Frostin Pride (another brand of non dairy whipped topping).
It spreads like a dream (when properly whipped)
If it's not whipped enough it won't hold piping design &/or melt on you.
It does not take color well - only to pastel shades.
Easily airbrushed for color.
Hi and Welcome to CC, elchai.

Rich's Bettercreme comes either pre-whipped (in a bucket) or in milk-like cartons that require whipping.
Overwhipping should only be an issue if you're whipping it yourself, not with the RTU (pre-whipped Ready To Use).
Here are some Pastry Pride decorating hints & tips:
(Also applies to Rich's Bettercreme.)
Handling instructions for Rich's Bettercreme RTU:
(But applies to the liquid once whipped.)
