I will be doing a bridal shower cake which the bride has requested to be lemon cake, raspberry filling, and Whipped Cream frosting. I was going to do a 12 inch square cake, buttercream iced, and planned to do a cornelli lace in pink over pale green. Now with the switch to whipped cream frosting, I am not sure if that is possible. Is it? What do I use for the lace? If not possible, are there any suggestions on what to do? Thanks in advance...

You can color whipped cream. Ice the cake in the whipped cream frosting and use your fav buttercream for the deco. There will be so little of it in comparison to the whipped cream that the difference in taste won't be very noticable.

I've used bettercream (not buttercream) a whipped topping mix and used it to decorate. I've made roses, shells, wrote with it etc. Works great...

I did my first cake with whipped cream frosting on Saturday. It was fine to pipe with. The biggest problem I found was that I couldn't smooth the frosting the way I normally do -- either with a paint roller or a Viva towel. So, I refused to post a photo of it LOL!!
