I have tried buying Costco Buttercream Icing but they tell me that it is not for sale.

Oh, that makes me sad! I LOVE costco cakes. It's always my request for Mother's Day/Birthday. I was hoping they did sell their frosting after reading the Sam's threads yesterday.

yeah, I was reading the thread too and was also wondering about Costco selling Buttercream Icing since there isnt a Sam's Club anywhere around me. Looks like I'm stuck with the old fashioned way, making it myself icon_sad.gif

I was also told at Costco that they sell no type of supplies, frosting or mixes from the bakery. I sure wish they did because I like shopping at Costco about 1000 times more than I like Sam's Club.

yah - my hubby and I tried sams club once with a free membership for a day coupon and were quite dissapointed. Def happy we have a costco as an option.

In the last 7 years I have used 6 different brands of Buttercreme from all the major suppliers. I have found that Sam's has the best taste and best consistency. The red is a little bit tart but can be sweetened to taste.

People get confused because the "STORE" the buckets under the bakery tables, under the bagels, etc, and think is for sale. It isn't.
