I've searched and read through the recipe section, left feeling overwhelmed. I usually make character cakes and stick to a decorator cream cheese recipe i found here. Now I'm starting to experiment with "regular" shapes. I'm looking for a great icing that is light, not too sweet...almost like the Dairy Queen icing on ice cream cakes or some grocery store icings. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Most big box and grocery stores use Rich's Bettercreme for their whipped (non-crusting) frosting. Sam's also uses Dawn But-R-Creme buttercream.

Sam's bakery dept. will sell large tubs of pre-whipped Rich's Bettercreme. Gordon Food Service sells qts. of the liquid Bettercreme.

Thanks! We don't have a Sam's here (and apparently are closing across Canada). I do appreciate the link to the mock recipes. I can't wait to try it out.
