I have heard a few people on this site really like using Sam's buttercream. I found out that my Sam's sells it, and it is waaaay cheaper than the tubs of BC that I was getting from my local cake supply. I was just wondering if it crusts?? TIA

It didn't crust for me, so I ended up using it on cupcakes instead.
I do like a crusting buttercream much better

Although, I just thought of something. Not to scare you off but, I work there and I help out in the bakery from time to time. Well, the other day I was icing some cakes and I got to about a third left in the icing bucket (it comes in 5 gallon containers) and I noticed that batch hadn't gotten properly mixed. There were ribbons of whatever they use as shortening in the icing. This stuff is supposed to be used straight out of the bucket. The reason I used the terms "the stuff they use for shortening" is because it did not look like shortening or butter at all. There's a reason why they call it "but 'r' creme". In fact the stuff looked like neosporin. Actually, more like carbolic salve. You know that stuff your grandpa used to use before they had neosporin? Yeah, it looked just like that stuff, I expected it to have that strong sour smell to it that carbolic salve has. Since then, I've kinda been turned off of Sam's Club icing.

are you sure you didn't get the "bettercream" by accident? that stuff doesn't crust. It's their whipped topping.

Love it! I make my own bc, but when I have alot of big cakes I buy Sams and flavor it with my flavors. It crusts great and no little bubbles!

I use the but-r-cream from Sam's when I do the kid's cake decorating birthday parties. And no, it does not always crusts for me. Some times it seems to soft/wet to even make roses. So I add powdered sugar to it to stiffen it up and make it crust. But not every time...sometimes it will be just right and crust.

That doesn't sound very appealing!!

I just bought my first bucket of it. A girl at work said it was good after you add your own flavoring to it. I have a few graduation cakes to do this week so I plan on trying it out.
