I buy the big buckets of icing from Sam's bakery all the time for $26.56. I went to get some yesterday, and the price was $31.18. Anyone else notice this yet? Or is it just at my Sam's? That's a big jump in price all at once! icon_eek.gif

It's not just your Sam's. I paid the same thing a few weeks ago here. I guess you can thank the economy for the price increases.

You buy the big buckets of icing from Sam's bakery? Please tell me how? Is it worth the $31 now that the price went up? Can I buy the same icing from Walmart? sorry about all the questions but I am very interested in buying the icing. I love decorating cakes but I hate making batch after batch after batch of buttercream. The Wilton icing in the large tub just seams so expensive. If anyone can shed some light on all my questions, it would be GREAT!

Tasha,

Sorry, but you can't get this at Wal-Mart...only at Sam's club. You can ask for it in the bakery.

It not only cuts back on time, but it also saves me on washing so many dishes! icon_lol.gif Everyone loves the taste of it and yes, it's still a bargain even if the price went up to $32.00.

There are many threads on this icing already on CC. Do a search and you'll see how many people rave over it. icon_biggrin.gif

HTH

Tasha,

You can only buy the buckets of icing at Sam's. You go back to the bakery and tell them you want a bucket of the buttercream icing. It is worth EVERY SINGLE PENNY!!! No matter what price! haha I HATE making icing. This tastes good and is so convenient. I do add some extra butter flavoring and vanilla extract, but you don't have to. If I make a wedding cake, I will make icing from scratch, but for most of the others, especially sheet cakes, I just use the Sam's stuff. It's the best discovery I've made on CC!

Yep- mine went up $5.00 to $31.18. I thought that was quite a jump in price! icon_sad.gif

I work for Sams and they did go up. One of the cake decorators that has worked for them sometime said they gone up.

Does anyone know if Costco has an equivalent to Sam's icing? I've looked, but haven't found anything. Maybe I'm looking in the wrong place.
