I would like to make a rosette cake but I find the usual buttercream too sickly sweet and would like to use an alternative. I have thought of cream cheese frosting but that would require too much cream cheese so will be costly, the same will be for white chocolate ganache. What else can I do?

I've used whipped icing and it works well without being overly sweet.

let me see if I can find the recipe I use. I also have used time to time the box mix of whipped icing that WILTON sells.

SMBC works wonderfully for the rosette cake.

I think bettercream might even work on this cake to keep it nice and not too sweet.

I would love the whipped icing recipie that you use. Always looking for non sweet good icing recipies.

Also what tip do you use for this cake? Someone gave it to me once but it looked too closed to make the deep cuts for the rose look, it was also smaller..

Thanks... any info appreciated!

You use a 1M tip. Would a frosting with cream cheese and cream with icing sugar be just as effective? Will it withstand room temperature?
