I'm making a wedding cake for some friends and they are really hoping for a whipped icing (as opposed to buttercream) on the outside of their cake as they prefer the lighter taste.
The venue doesn't have fridge space for the cake. I can put a stabilizer in the icing, but I'm concerned about how long it will last outside of the fridge. It will be winter so I don't expect the venue to get terribly hot, but still.
Thoughts from those of you with experience on this? How long can I count on the icing to last if I deliver the chilled cake to the venue? I typically only work with buttercream/fondant so I'm not feeling super confident about this.
Thanks for any help.
If you stabilize using piping gel you can get 24 hours out of it. 1/4 cup gel per 2 cups whipping cream. Another option is a whipped topping product called pastry pride. I will last for days with out a fridge and it tastes good too.
Yes we have something called dream whip. It can say outside the fridge. Real whipped cream should be refrigerated.
