I'll be making cupcakes for a wedding and the bride has requested whip-cream frosting. It is my understanding that the display life for whip-cream frosting is short (1-2 hours). Is this true?
Also, so there a light frosting that isn't very sweet (similar to whip-cream) that could be used in it's place? Something that has a longer display life (something similar to a buttercream).
1. What is the display life of whip-cream?
2. What would be a good substitute for whip-cream? (please include recipe and approximate display life)
Note: By "display life", I mean how long it can sit out of the fridge without running or flopping.
