I was wondering if I can make whipped cream buttercream icing (Wilton recipe) and Whipped ganache today (tuesday) to use on Thursday or Friday. Are there any special precautions to keep in mind while storing the frosting and filling?

TIA!

The whipped cream b/c is my favorite (not hi-ratio recipe):

This b/c doesn't require refrigeration. And ganache is stable for a few days, but whipped ganache isn't:

So if I understand right the fact that Crisco no longer has trans fats doesn't matter in the case of the whipped buttercream, correct?

Jan, have you ever made the whipped cream icing chocolate? How would you suggest? Cocoa powder or melted chocolate? Do you think this icing would hold up to having ganache poured over it to do the drips down the side?
Thanks for help!

Nope, I've never made the Whipped Cream buttercream chocolate. But it does sound tasty.

I don't know anything about the Wilton recipe. I use my own adaptation of the Whipped Cream Buttercream found in the Recipe section. And to make it chocolate I just throw in some cocoa. The way the recipe is written - mix it in two parts then mix together - works fine. This is stable at room temp and even outside.

I have to tell you that you saved me. I was going to have to go out and get some whipped icing to finish a cake and ran across these recipes. I tried the first one and it was perfect and tasted very good...I will be using it everytime now!!

I'm sorry, but I can't help you with the greasy problem because mine was very light and fluffy and no where near greasy. Maybe you didn't whip it enough?
