My father in law, doesnt like b/c icing. He loves the Whipped Icing like at the stores or bakeries he says.

Any idea for simple and quick recipe? Also with this recipe can I do transfers, and will it hold up for designs on cakes, and or borders etc???

Would I tint it the same as b/c? icon_confused.gif

There's no recipe for it. Several of our members buy it through Sam's Club or Gordon Food Service.

for a relatively close substitute you can use 2 cups heavy whipping cream with 2 tablespoons instant pudding mixed in just as the cream start to thicken as you're whipping - if you use white chocolate pudding you end up with relatively white icing - vanilla pudding is very yellow. You can acheive pastel colors. okay for simple piping -

recently got the tip here to try dixie's icing...ordered the sample box for 15 bucks and got several different varieties...love love love the original vanilla frosting and I think that would suit your needs. if you have the time i would suggest ordering from her. i got my sample box in just a few days.

We use a liquid whipped topping that you whip until you reach youre desired conisitency. We use it for all of our cakes birthdays and wedding. It pipes well and you can make roses and all kinds of stuff with it. It tints the same as buttercream although I think it takes a little more color. We buy it through Best Brands and Dawn which are bakery suppliers but sometimes we sell it to our own customers. You can try going to one of your small local bakeries and maybe they will sell you a carton that you can whip up yourself. HTH

It's Rich's Bettercream. Comes in liquid form or pre-whipped. Look at grocery stores, Sams sells it pre-whipped at the bakery.

Search for the post "Bettercream Fun" by Melvira here at CC its AMAZING!!

You will be hooked after reading that post and using Rich's Bettercream!!
