Hi, I'm kinda new to the cake biz and I was wondering if someone could help. I love my crusting bc frosting recipe but our local bakery's offer the smooth, beautiful, fluffy, non-crusting frosting. Some of my clients want to order this since it is what they are use to paying for. Does anyone have that "bakery" frosting recipe?? Thanks icon_confused.gif

Here is a non-crusting BC from the recipe seciton.

You also might want to try SMBC or IMBC both are absolutely fantastic but very heat sensative.

In reference to your name - ummm.... no you don't.

Some bakeries use premade icing. I know one I used to work for used Rich's Bettercream (like a whipped cream icing) and the Dawn brand icing in buckets.

Are you talking about Whipped Icing? Called Bettercreme? This is the icing that tasted like Cool Whip. It is very common in bigger bakeries. I purchase mine through Sam's Club. I just walk in, go to the bakery and ask for a bucket of it. Its $19.63 or something.

If they like whipped cream frosting, you can get Pastry Pride. Depending where you are in the country (I'm in San Diego) it may be called be a couple of different names like Frostin' Pride or Rich's. It is frozen in one quart milk cartons and you whip it with your blender until it makes a shelf stable whipped cream frosting that is delicious!! If you have a Smart and Final in your neck of the woods, you can find it in their freezer section. I seriously cannot imagine anyone not liking this stuff; it is fabulous. Here's a link to a site with more info on Pastry Pride (go all the way to the bottom of the page)

You'd probably be better off doing any decorations in crusting BC and placing on the Pastry Pride iced cake.

You can also go to recipes here or on Wilton . com Discussion Forum or recipes and get a non-crusting BC recipe--there are lots of them.

Thanks for the tip on Pastry Pride. I am going to go look at my Smart and Final to see if they have it. I looked into Rich's Bettercream but they don't sell it in my area.
