I hate making whip cream frosting and have never found a simple but good recipe I really like since I prefer b/c. But my boss wants whip cream for his son's cake I am doing this weekend and Fry's Grocery Store bakery has the best whip cream frosting that you can buy from them. Some come in colors, but mostly just plain white. I am doing a Nemo cake again so will need lots of bright and vibrant colors. Can I use the normal icing dye that I use for b/c frosting? I can just imagine the colors not blending and being screwed or them blending then them end up looking like they are all curdled or something. HELP!
Not having used that icing, I can't say for sure, but it should work. Try a small batch of some bright color and let it set for a while. that should give you a good idea.
I made a stabilized whipped cream for a cake for my aunt. I used regular Americolor to color the icing.
Duh! I never thought about just using a small scoop of it to test it. I'm a dork...lol! Thanks guys!
You can color it with no problem except you will end up with pastel colors instead of vibrant.
I add jello pudding to stabilize my whipped cream. You can use a flavored pudding or jello which will give you a base color usually pastel, then add a little color at a time til you get just enough color without making the icing too runny.
Yes you can color it. Just make sure when you do color or, or just work with it period, that you keep it cold. I like to put the icing in one bowl and then put ice water in a slightly larger bowl and sit the smaller bowl in that. Whipped icing takes on a strange, hard to spread, texture as it warms up.
