Recipe for Light & Fluffy Icing?
"I loath the taste of buttercream icing and I prefer the taste
of whipped cream icing. At the supermarket they have an
icing called light and fluffy. It tastes like stablized whipped
cream but it isn't. When I called to get the recipe they told
me that they got it through a manufacturer and that it was
for commercial use only....however, I would love to get
that recipe...any idea's?"

Can you help this reader?

Marshmallow frosting
Hi I found 1 recipe for you...this may not be the one you are looking for This is like a 7 minute frosting with marshmallows added in.

2 egg whites
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1/3 cup cold water
1 1/2 teaspoons light corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup miniature marshmallows

1 Put egg whites, sugar, water and syrup in top of double boiler. Beat until mixed well. Place over rapidly boiling water. Beat constantly with electric beater while it cooks for 7 minutes or until it will stand in peaks when beater is raised. Remove from heat.
2 Stir in marshmallows and vanilla. Beat until they melt.

I love cakes with whipped cream icing, but I don't have any idea how to make it. I hope someone comes up with the recipe. I usually have them put that kind on the cakes that I have made.

I use an 8oz container of Cool-Whip and add a box of sugar free pudding mix( favor of your choice) plus 1/4 C of milk or cream.

The Only icing I ever make!
This is unbelievably easy and tastes just like whipped cream. - It just keeps longer!

Whipped Cream Frosting
1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups icing sugar
2 Tablespoons milk
2-3 Tablespoons boiling water
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract

Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add vanilla extract. In one step add boiling water. (-takes away the powdery feel of the cornstarch in the icing sugar.) Can add milk, or if icing still tastes powdery I add another 2 Tablespoons of boiling water instead. Can add coloring or different flavoring. Keeps indefinitely. (Don't add too much liquid.)

Don't eat too much! It has more fat than whipping cream!

:) Thanks for the recipes. I really like that whipped creme tasting frosting, but didn't know how to make it.

Packages of Dream Whip have a "Fluffy Frosting" Recipe:

1-1/2 Cups Cold Milk
1 Envelope DREAM WHIP Whipped Topping Mix
1 Pkg. (4-serving size) Jell-O Instant Pudding & Pie Filling

Blend on low speed. Beat on high speed 4-6 minutes or until mixture forms soft peaks.

I recently made this using Pistachio Pudding. It was awesome!
