TIA



I just checked, it's Ateco 846 (oops!)... though I've done it with all sizes and types of star tips... I usually tuck flowers in where they curl and/or meet.

It is a gorgeous cake! I love it. I am ashamed to say that I am new to the various icings that can be used. Whipped cream frosting is on my immediate list of recipes to try (have always used regular BC or fondant). Forgive my stupidity and ignorance here.....teach me oh wise ones! How is IMBC (finally figured out what it stood for - DUH!) and SMBC different really from regular BC? Why would someone choose one over the other? I can understand it if someone requested whipped cream or BC, but do people actually request either of these?

Are these something that I should have in my 'rep'? I do want to try the recipe with heavy cream & pudding (is there strawberry? I have a request for strawberry frosting and have never done it).

TIA

Here's a good discussion about the differences between Swiss Meringue BC and Italian Meringue BC:

http://www.baking911.com/decorating/cakes_buttercream.htm

In my experience, it depends on how sophisticated your clientele's palates are. Some are used to the higher end bakery stuff (generally meringue buttercreams), others wouldn't be able to spot Crisco in frosting. There are some cakes I offer, like a mocha cake with hazelnut filling, that comes with a meringue buttercream because it's a good match. Generally I find that most people though, especially kids, are expecting and prefer the sweeter confectioner's 'buttercream' (butter and confectioner's sugar, not a 'true' buttercream).

Does that help? icon_smile.gif

Thanks for the info. Unfortunately the link didn't work. Do you have a preference as to which you prefer to work with? Is one easier than another? And I definitely want to try that rose of yours! Think about making a video instruction for it!!?!

Wow! I have a lot to learn. Thank you SOOOO much for the info. I think the whole thing about stiff peaks and all of that really intimidates me. But I guess i just have to jump in and give it a whirl (just like te FBCT).

Thanks again.

I didn't read the responses, because I'm getting a cold and wanting to go to bed.......but.......... I have the most awesome tasting made from scratch and EASY stabilized whipped cream recipe you'll ever taste or use.

You can make borders and stuff w/ it and and probably other decorations, too. I made shells and garlands. I would think you could make a rose, but not positive.

Use 1 cup heavy whipping cream.
1/4 cup powdered sugar.
2 tablespoons piping gel.

It tastes like the cream on the pies at Bakers Square restaurant. My customers RAVE on it! And it lasts several days believe it or not!

Ok, since my post was deleted I guess I can't mention that web site on here, so let me post the info on meringue buttercreams for you guys again, sans site reference:

(admin edit: post was deleted not because you mentioned the site but because they do not allow their content to be copy and pasted onto other sites.)

The 80th birthday cake in my photos is done all in whipped cream. Taste delicious too, kids would probably love it.


Do you still add sugar and extract to the cream? Or does the pudding sweeten and flavor it enough?

Also, how many cups does 16 oz heavy cream and 1/2 box pudding mix yield?

Hi,
I have to make a BIG cake for a corporate event that has pineapple cream filling and topped with fresh cream. I usually use cool whip. But I am not sure if it will hold for 6-7 hours which includes transportation time and display time.
Please help! The cake size is actually two full sheet cakes. I need to make it this thursday.
If it will not hold, can someone advise me some other high end recipes that would be delectable as well as really good.
Thanks.

i use swiss meringue buttercream--it's light and holds well

 

and no the allotted time is four hours accumulated time outside of 40 degrees f

 

oh cool whip?

 

i don't know about cool whip

 

but fresh cream and cool whip are two way different things

 

which one are you using? both do you mean?
