The Costco bakeries don't normally sell any of theire cake decorating products to the public.

If yours will sell you b/c, it'd be interesting to see what you think of it. (Please include the price, the manufacturer and the size of the container so we can compare to Sam's b/c.)

I use Sam's and LOVE it! It spreads beautifully and gets a really nice crust. It's very sweet, which i don't usualy prefer but my customers absolutely go nuts over it!

It's also one of those icings that when you open up the cake box to show it to the customer you get this big waft of vanilla and it smells SOOOOooo good!

I worked there in the bakery (Sam's) and the icing is indeed great! The only thing you need to do maybe, when you open it for another use is stir it a bit to get it creamy and always be sure to close the top on it!

It REALLY crusts good, LOL! And you might want to invest in a industrial styled opener for those types of buckets, it's a little hard to open and we need our hands!

I use it just as is.........the only time I even bother to stir a bit before scooping it out is if it appears to have melted a little causing it to look like it's separating...when it's SUPER HOT out.......other than that I use it right from the bucket. I also open the buckets up without a special tool with no problems!

Sometimes when I use it, it seems to crusts a bit so I stir it and while I don't have a special tool, I am going to get one because it is sometimes hard to open, but no, you don't have to have one, just a few different opinions for you to use and consider. But you will love it!

When you purchase the icing from Sams Club do you just go to the bakery area and ask to buy the icing and in what quantities do they sell them.

Thanks in advance.
