For a wedding cake, what whipped cream icing do you prefer and where do I get it? (I have only used buttercream in the past)
Thanks so much.

I always make my icings...imo never buy it from stores...to much preservatives....
Have you tried making Swiss or French Meringue Buttercream? Or if you want something technically "whipped" (which I'm guessing you might want it light)...have you tried making WBH house buttercream?

If your looking for something that is just like "whipped cream" you should try PASTRY PRIDE's non-dairy whipped cream! It whips up really sturdy and tastes just like "coolwhip"; it come in unflavored and vanilla. It's what alot of the pro. bakeries use!
Hope this helps thumbs_up.gif

You can make whipped cream icing with heavy whipping cream (which tastes FABULOUS!!!!) but the cake would require refrigeration. But it can be done!

I have found Dawns Velvetop at Cake Art in Tucker.It comes frozen and when you whip it it comes out just like the whipped icing on the store bought cakes.I like it ,but there is nothing natural about it icon_lol.gif

I personally use freshly whipped, (the real-stuff!) whipped cream icing. Cream, sugar, vanilla (other flavors, too, if you want)
Can't beat it! (no pun intended!)
