Has anyone ever used sam's club buttercream? And if so does it crust? Will I be able to use the impression mat on it?

I have used it before and couldn't get it to crust. I guess you could probably add some meringue powder to it to help it.

I have bought it twice. I didn't have any problem with it but I just decided to go back to my own buttercream. I still got compliments but not like I do when I make my own icing.

I just used it tonight and it did crust for me but was not as "crusty" as my homemade buttercream. i usually use indydebi's recipe but had so many this weekend that i decided to try it. I have never used an impression mat but if you put it in the fridge it may work.
HTH.

I started using this product and love it. Many rave reviews on the taste. I think the product does crust, I let my cakes "dry" a little and use paper towel to smooth and it is very forgiving and will smooth and not crack. I have used transfers and it has worked well. I do think the celing fan helps in my kitchen

What is "Sam's Club Buttercream"? - whipped or a true buttercream????
Do you buy it off the shelf at Sam's Club or do you have to ask for it from their bakery department? This is NEW to me!

vickichicki-
its usually in the bake near the bakery. its a brand calles dan food. i believe its an all shortening buttercream. i purchased mine from a supply store in my neighborhood but it the same as sams. it preatty goo. i put some more flavoring in mine and it color nice as well. i also used the viva smoothing method and worked great. i treid melvira method but was impatient and it stuck to my roller so i had to viva it.(only have one roller). i would try it if you have a sams in your area.

Sam's Club sells a Buttercream icing, Bettercream (whipped icing) and also a glossy chocolate. You can usually find it under the cookies and pies and such, but if you can't find it, ask one of the bakery peeps. They usually have some in the back if it's not on the shelf. Most stores will also let you taste before you decide to buy.

The big tub is about $18 I think. The buttercream is also available in already mixed colors. Or at least it was when I worked in the bakery.

I USE SAMS BUTTERCREAM ON ALL MY CAKES AND THEY CRUST VERY WELL. I ALSO HAVE DONE THE PAPER TOWEL METHOD AND THE ROLLER METHOD AND BOTH WORK WELL.

No just make sure that the date on the bucket has not expired.

I went and checked it out at my local Sam's Club and it was $26 and it really worked well for us - saved a lot of time and money and I like the taste of it. It sure speeds things up when you have a lot of simple birthday cakes to get done. I am so glad I found out it about here at CC.

Thats how I do it. Then I add a bit of brown food coloring for extra coloring. Just add a bit of cocoa at a time until you are satisfied with the flavor.
