I'm in the Uk and one of my customers has just come back from the states and tried a cake that had whipped cream frosting on it, and want me to make it for him.
I found a recipe online as follows;
1 cup whipping cream
Dash of salt
Rounded 1/3 cup flour, sifted
1 cup butter, soft
1 cup sifted confectioners' sugar, 2 for a stiffer frosting
2 tsp. Vanilla
Does this sound right? Does it turn into a spreadable frosting as the recipe said to put the cream, flour and salt in a saucepan and stir until it turns into a paste like ball. Then once it's cooled, whip the rest of the ingredients into it.
Can anyone help me out on this as I have no clue.
Also, how much does it yield? Enough to fill and cover an 8" round sponge?
I've also been trying to find a good whipped cream recipe. The fact is: not everyone likes traditional buttercream. Wal-Mart uses this type of frosting on a lot of their cakes, especially for kids' cakes. I have yet to find a good, fluffy recipe... try the recipe search here on Cake Central. They may have a good one.
