When I was watching Sandra Lee on the Wal-Mart cake thing on that tube thing, I scrolled down further on the page and saw videos on other cake decorating ideas, etc..
One video in particular really caught my eye, it looked like a walmart employee decorating a cake, a sheet cake in white with blue, yellow trim, scrolling happy birthday, and doing curly ribbons, etc..
Anyhoo, what caught my eye was the icing bags she used. They were "pre-packed" and "pre made", all she had to do was cut the tip off, put on the decorating tip and woo lah, out came the icing. You can even see the upc bar code and how they put list of ingredients writing, etc on the back of the bag. The icing was already mixed to the colors she wanted to use. And they were good size bags!!

I've never seen something like that! I would love to know where to get these premade icing bags, it sure would make my icing decorating go much faster!!
Anyone know where to get these pre made bags?
There were about 40+ cake decorating videos on this tube place thing.
I was in heaven!!

I have used them before when I worked at Coldstone. I THINK it is Bettercreme..... I personally didn't like the flavor/consitency.

Also you can't really custom blend, but if you make tons of cakes maybe? I dont know.

Where was that video? I didn't see it. Yeah, I've worked with those prefilled bags, it is Bettercream, and I wouldn't recommend mixing custom colors with them because the icing is already at the consistency you want it to be at. Whipping it anymore will just break it.

Yah, Rich's Bettercreme has the prefilled icing bags in different colors. I was just telling someone about that earlier today in another thread!

Why aren't you on Rich's payroll? Girl, they owe you SOO much money! icon_biggrin.gif

And since I have your attention, where can you get the prefilled bags? I only have access to the vat of bettercreme that Sam's sells...you know, the one big enough to drown a small child in...

Gordon Food Service. It's like a restaurant supply shop but anyone can shop there. I think a lot of caterers go there to get stuff.

Mmmmm... sorry, I can't answer... I'm fantastizing about swimming in a vat of Bettercreme now... heheheh.

If you don't have a GFS, try using the contact page on the rich's site to get someone to contact you with information on where to get these things in your area. And yah... they owe me big. icon_rolleyes.gif

Hi Again... yep, it is that you tube place. I know that in the search cat, I think you can type in cake decorating or icing the cake, something like that and it should take you there while your at the you tube place.
I know I started with the Sandra Lee Video and scrolled down the page from that. Most of the video cat's were on the lower right hand side towards the bottom of the page.
But it's there... you just gotta look..
I was so into the lookie loo's thing I couldn't believe it.
This Riches Buttercreme at the GFS, do you have to be a commercial buyer?
Can anyone buy from there? Do you have the site address?

ooopppss,, forgot to mention, this lady in the video doesn't talk. She's just decorating.
So, look for a large white sheet cake with blue border trim and go from there.
She's dress in a dark blue polo shirt and beige pants with the haircap on.
Hope this helps.........

The bags full of icing are kinda weird. Who would have thought? I'm still going to check into though. I'll see if I like it.

I have one in my freezer right now. They sell them at my local grocery right next to where they sell their frozen birthday cakes...

So how much does a bag cost? Does it taste good? Can you get them in any color that you want?

OK. That's it! I'm sick and tired of reading about how good this Rich's Bettercreme is. I have to find out for myself! So I just found the contact information for the nearest rep and I asked if I can get the stuff in my area or get it delivered to my area (I'm in South Louisiana). I HAVE to taste it for myself!!!

For others like me who have never seen the stuff and never heard of it before visiting Cake Central, this is how they describe it on their website:

Bettercreme® non-dairy icing and filling glides over cakes. It's so simple to use. It makes decorating easy for beginners. And it saves time for experienced help. Bettercreme® icing and filling even wins by an easy margin when it comes to taste. No wonder cakes iced with it as so easy to sell. Discover the many advantages:

it spreads easily
fillings are effortless
making borders and flowers are simple
decorates twice as many cakes as butter cream, pound for pound
consumers prefer the taste 2 to 1 over butter cream*
survives freeze/thaw without weeping or cracking
cleanup is simple
available in different formats - liquid, pre-whipped, pre-whipped icing in color
New Tip Inside Bag

For the first time, you'll be able to decorate right out of the bag because Rich's has filled it with Bettercreme® non-dairy icing and filling. There are all kinds of exciting colors, including our new lavender and black. And, there's a new decorator tip that is threaded to accommodate other metal tips for decorating convenience and variety.

Features and Benefits:

get substantial labor savings with easy-to-use bags, just clip and go
star tip slides out for immediate use
bags take up less space in the refrigerator
available in four colors (red, green, lavender and black) in 12 oz. pastry bags
no longer need to buy and clean separate pastry bags
easier to use for decorating than color butter creams

MUST....TRY....BETTERCREME!

Just an observation, as I don't use Rich's, but there must be another manufacturer, because the bag she used in the video did not look like the bettercreme bag, and she had colors that rich's does not offer.

Ok Kim, I am going to give you a little advice. I have somehow been dubbed the Bettercreme queen, so I have to act the part! Hehehe. Anyway, most importantly, if at all humanly possible, get the LIQUID instead of the pre-whipped buckets. It is better tasting and much more versatile. Secondly, prepare to be hopelessly hooked on it, especially for cupcakes. If you haven't already, please check out this thread for ideas that will turn you into a Bettercreme junkie!

Oh Melvira, you're the wicked queen! I've been daydreaming about snickers cupcakes and malted filling and bettercreme. I'm going to look like the Staypuft marshmallow man by the time I've tried all your recipes and suggestions! icon_evil.gif

Kim, where did you find it? i'm in West Central Louisiana and have never tried it either!!! Would love to give it a whirl!!!

OK. So I found the video. Here's the


. I read through the comments and someone asked here where she works and she said WalMart. I'm going to ask her if she can tell me what kind of icing that is. Maybe she'll send me a pic!

Melvira, thank you, Oh Bettercreme Queen and Mistress of the Dark...Chocolate! I bow down to you.

If it's addictive then I really can't wait to hear back from him!

Thanks!

Ruby2uesday: The rep's address is in Boutte, La, which is on Hwy. 90 south of Destrehan. Destrehan is South of the Mississippi on the way to the Kenner/Metairie area. I figured if there was going to be distributor in Louisiana it would be in the Baton Rouge or New Orleans area. I'll post an update when I get a reply.

"Nana's Custom Cakes



Posted: Tue Apr 15, 2008 9:28 AM


I am the lead cake decorator for our WM, all our icing comes in already made all we do is open the lid. The whipped is Richs Bettercream, and the other is Brill.

A friend of mine works for Krogers and they have to make their whipped icing, but it comes in liquid form with every thing in it and they just pour it in a bowl and beat it until fluffy, also Richs Bettercream.

**********************NOTE**************************

WalMart does NOT make their own frosting from scratch. There is no recipe. They purchase it. Please re-read what Nana posted above.

Yah, this is my new diet plan... if I fatten up everyone around me, I will look that much slimmer! It's easier than trying to lose all the baby weight. icon_twisted.gif

ok, goodie, I'm glad you all found the video. Now, question,,, looking at the video, which bag of icing is it she's using? It doesn't look like Rich's..
Please oh please let us know, exactly which is it that was being used.

I am sooooo sooooo anxious to try this kind of icing... Anything to cut the decorating time... icing just takes so gosh darn long to make. Yeah, I know, if you make it by your own hands, it's bound to be good!!

But sometimes, we just want to get the cake decorated instead of spending all that time,, making the icing.........
