Does anyone have any suggestions on a good frosting recipe for 200 cupcakes? I have a friend who wants me to do her cupcakes for her wedding and I am lost on a good recipe to use. The wedding reception will be at a boat dock in July, and I am concerned about using my whipped frosting recipe not only because of the dairy, but I'm sure it'll be humid. I need something that can be vanilla, and I can convert to chocolate as well. Any suggestions would be very helpful, I am a bit of newbie to some of this. I need something close to whipped buttercream taste. Thanks!!

I don't have an answer for you...

but I was about to post about the same thing. I recently used a bc that has Meringue powder in was for kids. They didn't really like it.

And I 've noticed a lot of people use all butter bc for cupcakes...but I'm wondering if they can hold their shape if I use a 1M tip and if it can take the heat and humidity.

So here's a bump for you icon_smile.gif

Rich's Bettercreme is a whipped frosting/filling that is shelf stable for about 5 days. Don't know how well it handles high heat & humidity...

Everything you ever wanted to know about Rich's Bettercreme & Pastry Pride:

These b/c recipes are proven to hold up in heat & humidity:

I would check out wiltons website for some recipes. But I think the recipe from sugar shack is a good one. It uses creamer instead of water. Hope this helps. good luck with all those cupcakes, congrats.
