Has Anyone Ever Stacked A Cake Iced In Pastry Pride?

I just got a request from a wedding coordinator for a two tierd cake iced in a light whipped icing. I'm assuming she means Pastry Pride which makes me want to tell her to call Costco. I haven't used pastry pride much but I can't image stacking it without it squirting out from the card board base.

Is this possible to do and how do you do it?

It sounds like you are not whipping the PP enough. You can stiffen it up a bit more before applying....but if you overwhip it it will crack and fall off after being on the cake a short time.

I'm trying to remember if I ever used it on a stacked cake -- it's been maybe 10-15 yrs ago *and* I didn't use PP but Frostin' Pride. It's the same basic frosting but formulated a bit differently to hold up better in warmer weather. Even still it will melt if over about 85 degrees.

What about something like Whimsical Bakehouse whipped icing?

It's light and whipped but very stable due to the high ratio shortening. And it tastes great because it also has butter. I've done 2 tier cakes with it, but there are others on CC who use it all the time for cakes with more tiers!

Well that doesn't sound good. I think I'm going to err on the side of caution and tell them if I do it it has to have buttercream. they always have the option to go with someone else.

HAHA, I meant the falling off the cake from over whipping didn't sound good, I hadn't yet seen your post sangriacupcake. Thank you for the idea of trying whimsical bakehouses' icing, I will give it a shot.

lol!!! You might want to look at the stacked cakes by Kiddiekakes...I think she has stated that she uses WBH buttercream exclusively.

Does this buttercream that kiddiekakes uses use veggie shortening or high ratio?
