Im doing a cake on thursday and they would love to have a whip cream icing. I cant find a buttercream recipe with whipping cream. should i just do a whip cream filling and buttercream on the outside. I will be covering with fondant. Im worried it wont hold up if I use a whipped topping. HELP PLEASE!!!!
Whipped icing doesn't hold up under fondant--sorry. Too much water and too much air to take the weight.
I use this recipe--with whipping cream in it--and people love it:
whip cream icing will turn fondant into soup. I use swiss meringue buttercream under fondant all the time and it works great....the texture is light and fluffy like whip cream, IMO. Best of luck.
What about Pastry Pride? It sets up a lot firmer than whipped cream and yet has kind of the same taste. Does anybody know if this works under fondant?
No sorry pastry pride won't work under fondant either. It will liquefy the fondant.
I used this recipe under my fondant and it worked fine: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Whipped-Cream-Cream-Cheese-Frosting/Detail.aspx
