What the *!@# was that???

post #1 of 59
Thread Starter 
Attended a wedding over the weekend. Cake was lovely. I cannot for the life of me figure out what the frosting was. Smooth as silk, like a cooked buttercream. No butter taste at all. No greasy mouth feel, like shortening. Light as if whipped, but firm American buttercream.

It's driving me crazy!! Reviewing all my recipes, I can't figure out what it might be...

I would find out who the bakery was and call them and ask them what kind of frostings they offer. Was it one of the meringue based butter creams perhaps?

I did a whipped buttercream that sounds like that. It was very light and non-crusting without a big butter taste.

Would love that recipe. I can't tell you the amount of PS I've been going through just trying to alter buttercream recipes. We don't have bettercream in Canada and trying to come up with something that doesn't taste like butter or shortening is difficult.
TIA

Sounds like Mousse Icing.

I also have a recipe for a whipped frosting that is with milk pudding mix and cool whip. I have never tried it so I don't know how it would hold up but it does sound really light.

If that's the one with 1 cup milk, 1 package pudding mix and 1 small tub cool whip, it tastes good but way too soft to decorate with. It really only works to put on a cake that you leave in the pan.

Kibosh,
you are not missing much by not having bettercreme - sorry my opinion, but it just has a chemical taste, even when I tried to add different flavorings-

Leah s ....now I'm off to look for Charlotte's whipped recipe - if it's posted somewhere...unless you have it handy ?
