I have a cake to make and the customer would like something not as sweet as butter cream. It's a white cake with strawberry filling and I suggested Stabilized Whipped Cream but it is a party on a yacht and no refrigeration available. The cake will be unrefridgerated for approx. 2 1/2 hours and I don't think that's a good idea for whipped cream. Any suggestions or recipes would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

I find it hard to believe there is a yacht made without any way to keep food cold. Maybe a sailboat? Anyway...cover the cake and place in an ice cooler with a bunch of ice bags (not bags of ice, the ice bags that you keep around for boo-boos.)

I agree. I can't imagine that they would make a yacht w/o a refrigerator, Even some of the larger nice boats (not yachts) have a refrigerator. Are you sure they are going on a yacht?

The ice chest with ice packs will work but if they're going to be on a yacht there will more than likely be a refrigerator.

Have you considered using non-dairy whipped cream like Frostin' Pride or Bettercream that doesn't require refrigeration? If you can wait as long as possible to apply it, it would be best. As it air dries on the cake it won't look as fluffy, and it tends to get rubbery (especially noticed when trying to serve as it may stick to the knife and peel off easily unless using a hot dipped knife).

Thanks for your ideas, it is a rental yacht so my customer was unsure but all is well and the refrigeration problem has been solved. Thanks also for the frosting suggestions, that is exactly what I was looking for.

You may have problems anyway...salt air plus sugar equals potiential icing slidage. Leave in fridge as long as possible.
