I bought some today at GFS. Have any of you tried it? What your thoughts on it. I found that it tasted good, but was awfully soft. Hard to decorate with. The lady at the store told me lot of bakeries use it but I can't see how they can make flowers and such with it. Did I not beat it long enough? Should I chill ot before I decorate with it? Does the cake need to be refrigerated after I use it?

It was really convenient to use but I still have my doubts...

Thanks!!!

Sounds like it should be whipped more. I like it and Pastry Pride for the "whipped cream" frosting requests. It should be refrigerated, but is 'safe' out for a while.

Does anyone know if BEttercreme is available in Canada?
I know we carry Rich's Coffee Cream but have yet to locate Bettercreme?
I keep reading about what a great product it is and I am just dying to try it. If anyone could give me any leads I would be very grateful.
