Costco uses a purchased buttercream frosting from Dawn Foods (at least mine did).

Sam's Club sells buckets of both frostings that they use in their bakery depts. but you have to ask for it. The whipped non-dairy frosting is Rich's Bettercreme, while the more traditional buttercream frosting (by DF) is But-R-Creme.

Some threads which might be helpful.
