It's the recipe for whip cream frosting that I found here. I'm just curious about it because it has flour in it and I've never heard of that in a frosting. There aren't any comments or ratings so I was just wondering if anyone had tried it?

I made a buttercream iciing from a receipe found on this site that called for cake flour. I didn't care for it AT ALL.

Is that a cooked frosting or an American b/c recipe?

If a cooked frosting there are reviews for similar recipes on other sites:



If an American b/c frosting, I'm not familiar with it. However, I've made American b/c recipes with flour or cornstarch added to increase stability and take away some of the greasy Crisco mouth feel.

I found it here http://cakecentral.com/recipes/7437/whip-cream

My mom hates buttercream so I was trying to find something like the whipped icing they use on grocery store cakes. The flour in this recipe just threw me.

That is a cooked frosting. I make a white chocolate cooked frosting that is really delicious with flour! Just make sure you are always stirring so it doesn't get lumpy. You can pipe some with it but it is harder to do.

The receipe that I made using cake flour was not a cooked icing. It is called "faux fondant buttercream" I think icon_confused.gif Found it on cc but didn't care for it at all. I used it to ice some dummies icon_lol.gif It crusted very well though.

i make this icing at times. it is very good. i made it for my sil b/d last week end. everyone loved it. there are some different recipes of it. some call it mocked whipped icing. toba garret calls hers french buttercream. etc. it is really good on different types of cakes. red velvet cake is one. my sil was a straberry cake with whipped cream strawberry filling and then i made this icing for the outside. none was left. lol

So is it like the sweet sort of stiff whipped icing like they have at walmart (I hate to use grocery store cakes as a reference, but it's the only place I've seen it)?

No, it's more like a stiff whipped cream consistency.
