post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Help! I have an 11X17 cake to frost, making white sour cream cake and raspberry filling. I want to do a nice whipped cream icing that is sweet and light- but I want something that I can pipe shells etc... and won't break down right away. Soes anyone have a favorite recipe that they use for this? I appreciate any and all feedback on this icon_smile.gif

I use the Rich's icing. It comes in a carton and is frozen. You can whip up as much as you need. It is not sweet like buttercream and it pipes nicely.

Where do you buy the Rich's in Canada. I have never seen it here on the west coast. icon_cry.gif

I just bought a tub of Rich's prewhipped from the bakery at Sam's Club. At $22 for 15lbs, I think it was a really good buy. It will keep in the freezer for up to a year and when I want some, I just scoop it out and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. Everyone who tried it just loves it now. I was told by Rich's Co. that Sysco (sp) also has it for sale.
I didn't trust myself to whip my own ... I've turned regular whipping cream into butter icon_redface.gif !

Here is the recipe I use. I am able to pipe on borders with it. I haven't tried anything else yet. I just can't remember if I got it on this site or not icon_cry.gif So I am really sorry I can't give credit where credit is do icon_redface.gif

1/2 c salted butter
1/2 c veg shortening
1# confec. Sugar
1/4 tsp. vanilla
3-4 oz heavy whipping cream
1 tbsp. meringue powder


Cream shortening and butter until fluffy
Add sugar, and cream until blended
Add salt, vanilla, and whipping cream.
Blend on low until moistened.
Beat on high until icing is fluffy
(you can add more confec. sugar or less whipping cream for stiffer consistency.)

One other option that will hold up well and tastes good, not exactly like whipped cream more like the stuff you get on a Dairy Queen cake, but the Wilton Whipped Cream Icing, It comes in a box and it is powder, all you do it add water and whip it up.

this recipe is simply the most delicious icing ever.it tastes the vanilla ice cream. use this icing when looking for something similar to whipped cream.

ingrdients;
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup milk
1 1/2 tbsp. all- purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tbsp. pure vanilla extract
3/8 cup whipping cream
1 1/4 lbs unsalted butter, room temperature


1. make custard by heating milk and sugar until sugar crystals dissolve. add flour and salt and whisk over an ice bath until the custard has cooled, or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1/2 hour to cool the mixture. whisk in vanilla extract.

2. ppour the custard mixture into mixer bowl with a paddle attachment. add cut-up butter and add whipping cream. mix on low speed to incorporate ingredients. gradually increase speed to medium- high until the mixture begins to thicken. it takes at least 7 to 9 minutes for the butter to be completely incorporated.

3. put the icing in a plastic container with a lid and refrigerate. it will keep for 1 week in the refrigerator or freeze for 2 months.

note;
dont panic if the buttercream looks like cottage cheese. the more you beat this buttercream. the creamier it gets.

its good recipe

I didn't know this was available at Sam's Club. Is it available on the shelf or is it in the bakery department? I've never been in Sam's Club before. I guess I'll have to check it out.

tinascakes, I just bought a tub of the Rich's pre-whipped at Sam's a few days ago. It comes in a 15lb. bucket and cost a little over $17. They don't keep it out front. I had to ask for it at the bakery counter.
