... I know the answer, I think, but just so I can make sure I've exhausted my resources <g>, I have a bride who wants stabilized whipped icing on her cake.

That wouldn't be a problem except for the string work which is not going to resist gravity at that consistency.

She also wants lily of the valley on it. Another one that I just don't think will work with SWI.

Any ideas? I told her from the beginning this may not be possible in SWI and may have to be buttercream but if you know a trick or tip, I'm all ears!

Thanks!!! icon_surprised.gif)

By Stabilized Whipped Icing, do you mean Stabilized Whipped Cream?

The icing that you make with gelatin and whipped cream and sugar, yes.

You're right, you can't do the things she's asking out of whipped cream. She probably wants whipped cream because she doesn't like criscocream. Have her try IMBC or SMBC, she'll probably like those and you can use those to do the piping. And you can always do whipped cream as the filling.

Thanks so much. Believe it or not, in 12 years this is the first request I've gotten for it.

She wants a white/almond cake and strawberry filling so no whipping cream for her! LOL

I appreciate the quick response! Thanks for being so helpful!

You're welcome! IMBC/SMBC will go great with that cake flavor and filling. You could always offer to do a small cake for just her and the groom that doesn't have any deco on it that is iced in whipped cream (at an extra charge, of course).
