I took a Wilton class and my instructor says I am extremely "heavy handed' when icing my cakes. I even bought and icing tip to put the icing on the cake..however as I start to spread it..I still see cake..and the edges are especially bad icon_sad.gif I put more icing on the cake..then the icing starts to droop and it looks horrible! I do not know how to fix this problem.. So i was thinking if I learned how to make whipped icing(like the kind that comes in the can)then I won't have to worry about having "peek a boo' cake showing from behind my buttercreme or even have to worry about it being smooth thumbs_up.gif I'm in the south and most people want buttercreme or some form of icing not fondant. I am trying to get them to be a "more kindler and gentlier" people toward fondant but so far thumbsdown.gif

So please help! Any recipes and suggestions.

I suggest switching from Wilton's criscocream to a real buttercream, such as IMBC or SMBC (do a search, there's a TON of info on here about them). They are much easier to smooth.

Thanks for your reply! I actually found a recipe up here..It is called whipped cream buttercream frosting. So I will try it and see if it works out. The IMBC and the SMBC look yummy as well
