Most of my family prefers the whipped-tasting frosting over buttercream. So now that I've mastered smothing buttercream I headed to sam's and got a tub of the whipped stuff.

man am I lost icon_sad.gif

I can get it level but it still looks like bubbles or tears in the surface. and since it doesn't harden or crust like buttercream I can do any sanding. Some internet searches suggest I stirred the frosting too much, it's too old, or too warm. It is well withing exp date, right from the fridge, with no stirring since I didn't add color.

any help with getting that perfect look with bettercream frosting? thank you.

There is actually a very long forum with an "expert" on this site that is all about the Bettercream. you may want to look for it. She goes by Melvira and this is the link to the thread

good luck
