Can anyone tell me if they have used this kind of frosting on a wedding cake? I am worried it wont hold up at an outdoor reception. also worried about transporting it as it doesn't crust the same as buttercream. I am making a 3 tier stacked cake so I am also wondering if it will hold up being done (stacked) for transport or if I should take it separate and give myself time to stack and finish at the reception.
thank you for any help you can give me!

hi, i would not use a whipped frosting it wont hold up to good to the outdoors, if your looking for some kind of frosting that isn't to heavy to the taste and isn't that sweet i would suggest a italian buttercream.your making a 3tier cake i would keep it separate and finish it at the reception i hope this helped a little and good luck!!
p.s. if your going to use the whipped frosting stablize it with some clear gelatin..

Yes... outdoors, but not in direct sunlight. Keep it in the shade... it should be just fine.

It should also transport well (either stacked or separately), but I don't know how you stack. (If you aren't using SPS, I'd recommend using a center dowel if transporting fully assembled.)
