Which section would it be found in? Do you have to ask for it at the bakery? How is it sold - 10# tubs for example? Can you freeze it?
Sounds wonderful! icon_smile.gif

I called the Bakery because I had a few questions about it. I told them i was coming to get it and it was ready when i got there. I bought the 28 lb bucket of But-R-Creme for $31.18+tax. They said keep in the coolest part of your house, but you don't have to freeze or refrigerate and it's good for 30 days. I'll see how i like it. I sure hope it's great. I imagine it can be frozen, so if i don't use it up in 30 days, i'm going to freeze it in smaller portions (at least refrigerate it.)

I keep some on hand for "emergencies" - and since I don't use it often, I put it in large ziplock bags and freeze it. I don't actually like the taste of it, so I mix in some Pastry Pride (Frostin' Pride or Bettercream) and whip it up so it's not as sweet and much lighter. It still crusts this way - but it's less obvious that it's a supermarket buttercream.

I bought the Sam's buttercream and added some flavoring and used it on the WASC cake. It was a hit. I am doing a wedding cake this weekend and this is going to save so much time. I love the WASC and the sams icing.

I bought some almost 3 weeks ago and I loved it. It does crust. Has anyone else heard how long it is good for?

so the buttercream does freeze ok? do you just thaw it later and rewhip it, or how does that work? i've always wanted to try their icing, but there's no way i'm using 28lbs in a month!

I freeze mine (as I rarely use it) and it's just fine. I just thaw it and whip it with the paddle blade on my KA - then I add the whipped frosting mix.
