I only make about 10 cakes a year for other people, so I'm far from a pro! This time the order was for whipped frosting, which I've never made. I tried a few, and this one turned out best! I used 50% power in the microwave for 30 sec, stuck it in the freezer while I beat the other ingredients (on low as suggested on several other recipes to make tiny uniform bubbles that won't pop). When I was done mixing, the gelatin was cool and I added that in. I kept tasting it and adding more sugar (I used all confectioner) and ended up using about a cup to make it frosting sweet. The consistency turned out perfect. I was able to make basic decorations with big tips, and once I put the cake in the refrigerator it kept it's shape for 24 hours, then for another 2 hours during a birthday party at room temp. before it got eaten. I made a 10' and 8' round tiered cake and needed 3x this recipe to finish the cake.
