Has anyone tried this? I'm making a pumpkin cake with a cinamon mousse filling for thanksgiving this weekend, and I really want to use a whip cream icing. But I also want a basket weave...HELP!

I've never tried a basket weave with this icing but it will stablize the whip cream ...never had it go runny or fall off the cake. But I have only used it to "ice" the cake, nothing too fancy other than rosettes.
Add a few spoons of sour cream to your whip cream while your whipping it, along with the usual flavor, sugar. I think its the gelatin in the sour cream that stablizes it.
My mom always added unflavored gelatine but I think it doesn't always disolve properly so I don't like it.

The exact recipe is

2 cups whipping cream
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup icing sugar

Thanks! That sounds good. Do you taste any of the sour cream in it?

Add 2 to 3 tablespoons of instant vanilla pudding to your whipping cream before whipping. It will hold just fine.

I can taste the sour cream, but I know its in there! so I just add a few spoonfuls but my hubby who hates sour cream doesn't seem to taste it!

I've heard about pudding but I usually don't have any in the house when I need it!

Oooh, that sounds good! And when I need chocolate, I can use chocolate pudding!
