What is that whipped cream topping I see at bakeries? It tastes like a mixture of light buttercream and whipped cream. What is the recipe for that and the best method to make it as light as whipped cream without it falling after 5 minutes of applying it to a cake??
Long Lasting Whipped Topping

I think it has gelatin in it or marshmallows, but in the bakeries I see, there are cakes that the topping lasts a couple weeks and still stays good-tasting and light and fluffy. Need to know how to create the deliciousnesss!! It will help me out with making long lasting cakes that dont taste like a pile of sugar :)
I'm not sure where you are, but here in California there's a product called Pastry Pride that displays those traits. It's just a creamy liquid that you whip up and apply as a buttercream. I personally dont enjoy the taste of it, and I'm sure there are plenty of products like it. It's been a long time since I've seen it used, so the ingredients arent fresh in my mind, I would think, though, that it would have something other then gelatin to make it stable.
Have you been to the bakeries at Wal-Mart or Sam's, or any other of those corporate bakeries and ate those cakes with the frosting that taste like a mixture of buttercream and whipped cream? I wanna know if it's a lighter buttercream or a stabalized whipped cream?? Its confusing but amazingly the cakes are on display for maybe a week or two!
It's probably a non-dairy whipped topping; it comes in a carton and is exactly like as Minas described - a creamy fluid that you put in a mixer and whip til it looks like whipped cream. I don't know that you can buy this stuff from a grocery store, I think you'd have to get it from a restaurant/foods distributor (Restaurant Depot maybe?). I think I've seen it online at amazon.com but I could be wrong about that.
that sounds about right; the Dawn rep stopped by with a carton of Velvet-top and the case of 4 gallons was about $80. That seems expensive to me, but I have no idea how much that would make and how many cakes that would cover so maybe it is not as outrageous as I think it sounds LOL. He whipped it up while he was there, and one of the staff said it tasted like Cool Whip.
