Frosting... :-/

I've been everywhere looking for powdered sugar for a batch of frosting for a birthday cake this week and I just can't find it in any kind of large quantity. 1/2 cup pouches maximum. I would have to but more than 12 of them to make it happen, and I really don't want to spend 20 euros on powdered sugar. I was thinking of maybe a whipping cream based frosting (but not whipping cream on its own), but I can't find any recipes. I'm baking a white velvet cake with strawberry lime curd filling. Can you shoot a recipe or three my way to help a kid out? Birthday cakes for FILs are serious business, you know... :-D
