I want to add flavors to make it taste more like indebis icing and it seems like it is SO thick when I frost cakes iwth it. icon_sad.gif I wonder if some creme bouquet and more vanilla would help?

Why don't you just make Indydebi's icing? icon_confused.gif

Yeah, make Indydebis if that's the flavor you want...BUT, if you want to tweak Sam's icing, creme bouquet will work, but it still maintains it's original flavor pretty much....a lot of people tend to like it and it is convenient.

Yeah, I've had one, too. You can take out the amount you think you need, and add as much of any flavor as you will improve it, but you never quite get rid of that flavor that it has, but that's not necessarily a bad thing, just a matter of taste. Almond and creme bouquet have the strongest effect on it though, or a combination of the two. Vanilla doesn't do much for it. Maybe a rum flavor...not that any of these will make it Indydebi's, because it will never taste like that. I have mixed it with a block of cream cheese for a quick cream cheese icing or thin it a tiny bit with milk or liquid coffee creamer.

You can mix some Pastry Pride (or Rich's Bettercream) in with it, and it will lighten up the icing and make it not so sweet - as well as much easier to work with. This is what I use to ice dummy cakes.

What is the cost of the icing from SAMS?

Okay, thanks for the info girls. I do like the flavor of sams, I just prefer the other, thats all. Once I use sams up, I plan to make a bunch of batches of indidebis and store in the same bucket. Im sure it will hold up a month or two, right?

I have mixed the Sam's Club icing with SMBC or IMBC and it comes out great! People have loved it when I add raspberry torani syrup to it as well.
