I have been asked to make a cake for an 80th birthday. They would prefer whipped cream to buttercream since they find bc too sweet. Is there a good recipe for whipped cream that will not deflate. Can you decorate with whipped cream? Does whipped cream take color the same way as bc? Any restrictions when using whipped cream? As you can tell, I haven't used whipped cream, except whipped chocolate ganache and that I use as a filling> I'd appreciate any suggestions. Thanks

I would try Rich's Bettercreme, Pastry Pride, Whip-N- Ice, etc. It's like whipped cream, but is very stable. You can pipe with it. You can add flavoring.
you will only get pastel colors if you try to color it. HTH icon_smile.gif
