I've decorated cakes for years, and even worked in a grocery store bakery at one time. I don't make my own frosting (except for carrot cake) anymore.

I purchase Rich's "Bettercream" or "Pastry Pride" from the local cake decorating store (that's what the bakeries use). I used to be able to get it at Smart n Final in California (before they opened I got it at a cake decorating store), now in Virginia, I'm back at the cake dec store. I imagine a restaurant supply store would have it as well.

It ain't cheap, but its SOOOOO easy to work with, you just whip it up with your mixer, no stabilizer needed. Nothing to add. Non-dairy, too. I'm a total tightwad, but a quart costs about $5-$6 and does two 1/4 sheet cakes, and I still think its worth it. Comes in chocolate, too.
