I was going to buy their buttercream & I do know that they make a chocolate one too which I do like, but I didn't waNt to buy both. so I was wondering if there was any way to make the buttercream chocolate instead of having to buy it? What, if anything, would I have to add to it Hersheys coco powder?
I use Sam's Buttercream and get orders for Choc. bc once or twice a year! So I don't ever buy the choc. everytime I go (every week or so) I ask if they have the little 5 lb. buckets of choc. buttercream....one day they'll get sick of me and figure out a way to carry it LOL
Anyhow, I add cocoa powder and hershey's choc. syrup as well (helps make it darker in color)
I would say that I add about 1/4 c. of cocoa powder for about 4 or 5 cups of icing and then maybe a 1/4 c. of the syrup too. I really just kinda dump it in there and mix if I want it darker I add more..then taste.
When it sits for about 10 min. it does get darker in color too.
Here are a couple cakes that I did this to
KHalstead, do you use sams buttercream on all your cakes? and have you ever used/tried the bettercream? how do they work/taste? THX
Thank you so much KHalstead! I thought that maybe I could, but wasn't to sure. I know there have been a bunch of post about Sams buttercream but for some reason I can't find any of they..I think my comp is messed up or something =(
Mark the buttercream tasted really good..nice & smooth it crusts too! If you go to a Sams & ask they'll let you taste it! I've never tried the bettercream tho.
Thank you, I'm definitely going to try it!
I use Rich's Bettercreme as well, but I don't buy it prewhipped at Sam's I get it in liquid form at GFS..only because it takes up less storage room and I've heard that the bettercreme at Sam's is sometimes overwhipped, so I like to have control over how much I whip it.
The bettercreme tastes more like whipped cream, the But R Creme at Sam's is much sweeter and it crusts really beautifully.
Bettercreme is great as a filling (specially for cupcakes!) and it takes pretty much any flavoring method you can think of... And Sam's But-r-creme is a fabulous icing, crusts and smooths perfectly.
I just bought the Sam's But-R-Creme for the first time. I think it tastes pretty good, but has anyone noticed that it is "gritty"? I noticed that my bucket says "0 Trans fat", so I figure that this is the problem. Anyone else see this? Thanks!
haven't noticed that!
