Hi hope somebody can help. I will be decorating ice cream cakes. Any suggestions for frosting? The owners want to use a commercially prepared frosting. I have used whip n ice but have had some problems working with it. Any suggestions?

Whipping cream, or even American buttercream. icon_smile.gif

I used to work at baskin Robbins and we iced with ice cream but it wasn't regular vanilla, it was bright white. It's just softened and iced like normal and popped back in the freezer. But if you want something easier I'd just use regular buttercream because it freezes well.

A lot of CC-ers like Rich's Bettercreme. I, personally, have not used it, though.

Rich's bettercream, or the equivalent is used by ice cream places. I have frosted an ice cream cake in american b'cream and it was fine. The only thing is that it hardens when it touches the frozen ice cream. You have to work very quickly and very neatly.
