how do I make whipped frosting?

by Courtney

I am making a birthday cake for my sister. She absolutely loves whipped frosting.

How would I make it? Could I use the Whipped Lemon mousse without the lemon?

From the editor:

Hi Courtney,

If by whipped frosting, you mean 'cool whip' type frostings, then stabilized whipped cream is your best bet. To make it:

* Soften 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin in 1 tablespoon of cold water for 5 minutes.

* Heat until the gelatin melts (microwave for 30 seconds on high, check then repeat if necessary).

* Add to 1 cup heavy whipping cream, whisking until gelatin and cream are well blended. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

* Add 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract and beat with electric mixer until cream is thick and holds its shape. It will thicken even more as it sets in refrigerator. Will store for 2-3 days.

stabilized whipped cream and buttercream NEW
by: Jan

I like the taste of stabilized whipped cream but the reliability of buttercream for decorating. Is there a combnation frosting recipe?
