I was asked to make a cake for my 4 yr old neice's birthday BUT they don't like 'sweet' icings and only like the icing that the grocery store bakery uses or whipped cream.
I've searched high and low but I'm still empty handed....
Does anyone have a recipe similar to the grocery store or costco icing?
Thx

The non-dairy whipped frosting used by most big box stores is Rich's Bettercreme:

I asked Wal Mart bakery yesterday about their icing and they said that Sam's sells the same kind they use for icing their cakes.. They said the sell it by the tub. I don't know if it is whipped or not but you could check it out.

Give the Whipped Cream Buttercream from the recipes section a try. It's light and whipped, but not as heavy as a classic American buttercream.

The Whimsical Bakehouse House buttercream is a great light, less sweet recipe as well. Easy to make too.
