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?

Sorry if this is no help at all (since you already stated you've searched) but have you tried Sam's Club..I've heared you ask for it at the bakery.. I use Pastry Pride or Frostin' Pride and get it at Smart&Final -maybe not in your area- In a desperate situation there is a Wilton Whipped Cream Mix that sells at Micheal's Craft Store, however it is not as stable as the one's I've mentioned previously. To sum it up, I do not have a recipe..sorry hope I didn't waste your time. :/

I think a lot of what the stores use is "Butt-r-creme" or something to that effect. Rich's Cream is like cool whip that you whip up yourself or you can always use real, regular whipped cream - though you won't be able to use any fondant decorations.

I've asked at my local bakery and they said no, they dont' sell it.
I'm in Canada (Ontario to be exact) so I'm not sure if our stores carry most of those items icon_sad.gif
What is GFS?
I'm hoping I can find some kind of recipe that I can try to make with regular ingredients at home, since I doubt I will be able to find the things listed.
Thanks for your help ladies, but you guys have it way better south of the boarder when it comes to culinary items!
