AHello to all I'm in desperate need of a good tasting stabilized whipped cream frosting that is also good with decorating and can be left out at least one to two hours.
to me whipped cream is whipped cream -- it can safely be out of temperature for an accumulated total of 4 hours* -- i used to add piping gel** to all my whipped cream to stabilize it till a bunch of pastry chef friends convinced me that it was unneccessary -- i mean if you beat cream too long you get butter right -- so if you beat it till just before it's butter it's as stable as it's gonna get gelatin or not -- but regardless it's just like butter where it responds to air temps/humidity etc --
there's some non-dairy whipped topping products that i can't think of the name of 'bettercream' i think? if you have a store with a jewish section you can find it there -- that's where i've gotten mine -- i think bettercream can be left out -- pretty sure can't remember for sure --
*but if i was at an event where a whipped cream covered cake was left out for any length of time i would not eat it because it would make me question the safety practices
**has tons of gelatin in it
and whipped cream sucks for decorating anything other than a big fluffy shell border
you can try googling: Food Pusher Stabilized Whipped Cream. Another frosting I like to use is the one Ree Drummond uses on her red velvet sheet cake. I think it tastes a lot like whipped cream.
