I have a customer requesting 'whipped' frosting as well. I am telling her that I have American or a Swiss meringue frosting in my buttercream selection. I could do a stabilized whipped cream for a dessert cake, but for a buttercream decorated cake, I don't use the Whipped frosting. Using a Bettercream or other type of product doesn't fit into my business model, so I have no problem redirecting them to what I can do that they will enjoy the taste of. (and try to find the reason behind the request for whipped...perhaps they see it as the only option to a super-sweet supermarket style american buttercream. If it is less gland-grabbing sweet they want, then I will use a SMBC.)

This is a good recipe. I have used it with butter, shortening, and a combination of the two. Just don't use the Wilton brand meringue powder because it will make the icing taste sour.
