Not sure where you are located but in California you can buy Pastry Pride at any Smart and Final store. It is a non dairy whipped topping which needs no stabilization and whips up stiff enough to make roses and stars. At Sams club or Costco you can buy Bettercreme or Rich's which is pretty much the same as Pastry Pride. Ask for it at the bakery. Take a look at my gallery, Pastry Pride is all I use, no buttercream or fondant.
