Answer
The Secret is.......
that they buy in specialty bakery products from a bakery supplier, which aren't readily available to the home baker! You wouldn't believe all the cool stuff that we bakery professionals can use to make our products really good. I'd like to say that it's "all skill", and sometimes it is, but a lot of the time, it's the fact that we have access to ingredients and products that home bakers don't even know exist.

In the case of the whipped type icing you talk about, it's one of those products we can get from our supplier. It's called Rich's Bettercreme, and it's NON DAIRY, which explains why it holds up so well.
Here's a link to it:

At home, you can make whipped cream and add a powdered stabilizer to it....it comes in little packets and it's in the baking section of the grocery store......I think it's called "Whip-It" if I remember right....it's been a long time since I've bought any.
OR
You can buy good ol' non dairy Cool Whip and use that. Technically, it's not a whole lot different from Rich's Bettercream....holds up well too.

If you have a Sam's Club nearby, you can purchase a bucket (5 gallon...but it freezes well and long too) of bettercreme(whipped icing) pre-whipped. Beat 4 ounces of cream cheese, 1/2 stick of softened butter...add once package of cream cheese instant pudding (dry)(can omit pudding mix and simply add 1/2 cup powdered sugar) and 1/2 cup whipping cream/or milk/or combination of the two....beat until well mixed. mix (don't beat in too long though) in some of the thawed (overnight in fridge) pre-whipped Bettercreme, starting with 3 cups...add more if you want it less cheesecakey tasting. refrigerate until ready to use. Leftovers can be frozen and thawed overnight, restirred and used at a later time.

It's different but similar...

the one khalstead posted uses the liquid Bettercreme (which, unless I place an online order, is not readily available to me), mine uses the pre-whipped Bettercreme (which is available at my nearest (25 miles) Sam's Club. Mine also includes some cream cheese.

The recipe I added (cream cheese,butter, powdered sugar) is the base I use for a multitude of mousse-like fillings simply by changing the 'additions' like caramel or peanut butter or preserves or or or....

I buy the liquid Rich's bettercreme at my local cake supply store, also at GFS (Gordon Food services) you can check their site to see if there is a location near you.

ok... this order is starting to GET to ME!

This is a male making a cake order for his daugther's b-day and his Wife's Surprise Birthday party

Well he called thursday... asked if I did red velvet... I said yes... he asked for both cakes in red velvet.... so from thursday through sat we discussed the sketches... kinda finikky (sp?) for a man.... first he asked fr a cheerleader cake... then changed to a cake with circles all around...

ok so today he calls to tell me (BTW: "This is ALL DUE BY FRIDAY") he wants to change the flavor for his wifes cake.... he doesn't want red velvet both days... so little miss stupid here... says .... why sureeeee np!!!

Well.. he starts... well... i dunno what she likes... wellllll she hates buttercream...
so I ask... how about chocolate... nahhhh she is not crazy about chocolate....

so he decides of strwbrry... now he is debating what filling to have....

then the topper... he DOESN'T LIKE THE DRESS THAT i SKETCHED FOR THE TOPPER... then he doesn;t like the border that i did for the other cake...

so I tried to be nice and accomodate everything but obiously he is NOT satisfied... now
DH said... just tell him that we took a last minute double order just because both cakes were red velevet with the same filling.... so take it or leave it...

I told DH I would give him until 4... if he doesn't answer... then:
Should I canc the ordr?
Should I tell him he needs to get either red velevet of yellow cake... it's too late for specialty cakes
Should I wait for him to tell me what dress to put on the topper?????


This is my first very first DIFFICULT CLIENT..... and I have a headache and I am stressed and I resent the fact that I have been on hold all day because I can't start anything until he decides... (I have other orders to fill u know!!!)

I need some advice... some string advice!!!

Um....the filling in a strawberry shortcake is strawberries and the icing is whipped cream. Anything else isn't strawberry shortcake.

Well, traditionally, the "cake" part is kind of like a cross between a biscuit and a scone...I use my standard vanilla butter cake recipe for mine, though, and always get rave reviews.
