  • "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?

    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.
  • Frosting
    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!

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