I looked in the recipes section and didn't quite find what I am looking for.
I am looking for the light "whip cream" frosting that can be used to frost a cake and decorate with (somewhat stiff consistency then)
It would be something similar to those basic birthday cakes you can order from the grocery store... where it tastes pretty much like whip cream from the aerosol can.
Does anyone have a base recipe for this?
I am needing to know too and to tolerate humid weather too! ANYONE?
Try this custard based recipe:
I used this one and it was great out of all I have ever tried hold up pretty well too
Try & find Rich's Bettercream in your area. It is awesome, tastes like whipped cream but is stable and you can pipe & make borders from it. It comes in a frozen carton and also premade sleves of different colors.
What stores in S.C. can you state that has bettercreme? I tried Pigglywiggly , but anyone to help me find this ? I"m eager to try it!
Ok., I tried the one recipe,,but is there any others at all you would suggest?
Try your restaurant/bakery supplier. If they don't have it they may be willing to order it for you. It's a frozen product. Or check Rich's web site. www.richproducts.com
There may be info there that might help. You will not find it at a grocery store. hth
Hello! I get my whipped topping from dawnfoods.com. it is called velvetop whipped icing. It is exactly what all the big grocery stores use(i worked at jay c, a branch off of kroger for several years and they got EVERYTHING from dawn foods). You can get a big bucket of white or buy little buckets of precolored icing. I have tried to color it but it changes the consistency and it is not workable. I haven't found a recipe that matches up to this. It is thick like buttercream and all of the recipes I have found are very light and airy.
I live in Oregon so the we don't have a problem with the humidity but I use pastry pride. It is great for covering and borders. Roses look big and bulky like you see in a grocery store. Does need to be in frig until close to time of using. Great Whip cream taste. I buy from grocery store in freezer section.
You can probably find out which product is more likely to be around your area and ask the store to start carrying it.
My Sam's Club sells a 15 lb. tub of Bettercream for 19.00....look there
good info thanks
ok! I'll ck out my sam's club here too! Thank you! I hope they have it!
