My cupcakes are standard size - 2 x 1 1/4 liners
I'm getting the 32 oz liquid Rich's Bettercreme and whipping it myself.
How many standard cupcakes would this ice aproximately?
Also, can I whip this stuff using a hand mixer? I dont' have a stand mixer.
AHand mixer will work :-) I iced a 8" cake with one so I would think you could get about 36 cupcakes or so but it depends on how much or how tall you make them :-)
Wish I could get bettercreme or pastry pride here. I know they use it at the commissary bakery but I have not yet asked them if they will sell some to me. I will call them one day and find out. Last time I was there the girl put a small amount on a spoon and let me taste it. It reminds me of cool whip somewhat.
If you want an even better whipped cream icing try whipping one box of dry pudding mix with a pint of heavy cream. It is so good! I got the recipe from this site, but don't know who to credit. It is very stable and can sit out as long as it isn't hot.
AI had a cupcake wedding last week that was outside, so I used bettercreme on them and I got about 50 per carton, piped with a 2D about 1.5" tall.
