Is whimsicle bakehouse buttercream very sweet?

I am looking for a not sweet buttercream.. more like a whipped cream buttercream I guess, but I also like the crusting effect of reg buttercream.. Is there an icing that is both?

WBH BC is on the sweet side, but it's marvelous though. It's not heavy like buttercream and it tastes wonderful. It doesn't crust, though.

Sorry, I have no suggestions for a not-too-sweet buttercream that crusts.

I have never heard of this. Where do you get it or where can I find the recipe?

WBH house buttercream is great, it is light and not too sweet.
A crusting version of a frosting that is not to sweet is (although is is not as light or fluffy)

I use different flavors of coffee creamers to change it up.
It is really good!
Best of luck!

There are two different frostings from WBH, Kaye's Buttercream and the house buttercream. Which one did you want to know about?

You can search for Whimsical Bakehouse Buttercream. The recipe has been posted several times in the forums - you just have to search a bit.

I love the house buttercream. It isn't overly sweet. Kayes buttercream is more like a meringue buttercream.

Thanks for the replys!
I have used Kayes and while it is not sweet at all I find it harder to decorate with.. I'm not sure what would be the best to use,
I have to to a football field and helmet cake this weekend.(although the helmet will be fondant) but the customer does not like buttercream.. she wants the whipped stuff like you can get from the walmart cakes.. icon_confused.gif

I'm just looking for something that will please the customer (which is also a friend) and that I can work with! WHich one do you suggest?

Walmart uses bettercreme. I would try to find that and use it. Melvira has a thread with different ways to flavor your bettercreme.

is bettercreme like a whipped not so sweet icing? I've seen it at my local cake decorating shop.. just never thought about using store bought icing..

Yes. it's not as sweet as buttercream. It's a nondairy whipped topping. It's what walmart and sam's club uses on their cakes.
