I have a friend who says she always use to get cakes at the walmart bakery and asked for "cool whip icing". She said it wasn't sweet like buttercream is. I have NO clue what she is talking about? Does anyone happen to know?

Walmart uses something called Butt-R-Creme. You can buy Rich's Bettercreme, which is a liquid that you whip in the mixer and it makes that fluffy stuff that's not as sweet as buttercream. It also doesn't have to be refrigerated once it's on the cake and you can pipe decorations with it, which you can't with real whipped cream.

Sam's sells the Butt-R-Creme as well as a whipped type frosting in 5 gallon tubs. I have used the Butt-R-Creme but not the whipped. The people in their bakery will tell you more about it if you ask. Hope this helps.

And one advantage is it will last through nuclear explosions and has a shelf life of 1.2 lightyears. icon_biggrin.gif

Somehow when I read butt-r-creme I always think of Boudreaux's Butt Paste icon_biggrin.gif

There's a reason why they call it Butt 'R' Creme instead of buttercream.

Because it contains neither butter or cream. icon_biggrin.gif

EDIT: and to offer my answer to the OP question, yes, your friend was talking about Rich's Bettercream. It can be bought online unwhipped or prewhipped, but Walmart and Sam's Club only sells it prewhipped.

If you want to make your own less sweet buttercream, The Whimiscal Bakehouse recipe for buttercream is good. I have one customer that doesn't like really sweet stuff that I make it for.

You can google the recipe, or pm me and I can give it to you.

The Sam's carries But-R-Creme (made by Dawn Food) which is a traditional buttercream frosting:

The Sam's also carries Rich's Bettercreme (made by Rich) which is whipped non-dairy icing:

Either product can be purchased at the Sam's bakery dept.

I do know that I'd never want something with "butt" separated from the rest of the word in my mouth. Butter? OK. Butt-er? Ah-no thanks.

The whipped icing like cool whip is in the big pail for $19.50 or so (chocolate or vanilla). My husband picked it up for me and although I can taste the cool whip flavoring, the kids like it and its quick and easy.

And the Sam's club regular icing in the huge tub for $30 or so is wonderful when whipped on high with some boiling water. Its creamy and light. The chocolate is excellent as well. And much more affordable then when I made it myself. Tasted great too. I added a bit of super expensive duth processed cocoa and it was dark and rich and insane.

And yes, I'm sure most of you will gag a bit. Or wonder why I would add good chocolate to a pre-made product but in my experience, the tastiest things I have made (besides the carrot cake, banana cake and cheesecakes, which are all made using no pre-packaged ingredients) are a combo of package stuff and rich ingredients.

If you have a GFS Marketplace in your area, they carry the liquid in quart size cartons too.

Since it is like whipped cream, does it melt after being out for a while like whipped cream does? After it is on the cake, does it have to be refrigerated before serving?
