Hi guys....I got a request for a strawberry shortcake type cake, but I have to make something that a) can be left out at least overnight, ans b) that can hold up under a lot of fondant decorations.

SS cake is usually made with whipped cream that is not good for either problem.

What kind of light tasting cream filling can I substitute. I think bc will be too heavy?

Thanks!

I made this a few times and it comes out pretty light for an icing that can be left out forever. Would probably be better with hi-ratio shortening than crisco even.

I took a look at the recipe...very do-able...thanks..
Do you think it's stable enough for fondant?

I've used the house buttercream from the Whimsical Bakehouse and it is very light and fluffy. I would think you could fill the cake with that if you use a stiffer dam and you'd be ok. It's easy to make and delish!
