I was looking at trying Brill buttercream and was wondering if anyone out there has used it before.

I would like to have it to use for "emergencies" and just extra piping.

I haven't used it but looked into buying it. The Albertson's bakery here uses it. I figure if they use it it cannot be bad. I bought an Albertson's cake just to taste the Brill icing. The crust on it was nice. I even stood and watched them make the cakes. That Brill seemed easy enough to work with. I hope that helps. icon_smile.gif

I really like Brill. If I have a lot of orders, I love to have it on hand because I get really tired of making icing. I usually use SugarShack's hi-ratio buttercream recipe, but Brill tastes very good. It keeps forever and it is so convenient to have it on hand. It also pipes very well. I hope this helps.

Where I work we use Brill icing all the time. It doesn't taste bad and is pretty easy to work with.
They are changing their formula for us on the 20th of this month. We will be adding real butter to it when we mix it. I don't know if that is for everyone or if they will have different kinds for different customers. I am really looking forward to it.
They are also changing their formula for the Bettercreme and it will actually have milk product in it.

It looks like your basic white buttercream. Brill is just the brand name. It is made by Brill. Buttercream icing made by Brill.

Thanks everyone for their posts!

I think I will buy some to try. I will still ice the cakes with my own bc but would like to have some premade for "emergencies" and some piping.
