Does anyone know if Sam's buttercream crust....I was pricing it today and am tempted to purchase to save making my own....I think I saw somewhere where others use it and it taste well.

Yes it does.

Tastes like grocery store buttercream.

IT CRUST FINE, I ALWAYS REWHIP IT AND ADD MORE POWERED SUGAR AND MY OWN FLAVORS. I USE IT WHEN I HAVE ALOT OF CAKES AT ONCE.

I use it for all my cakes, my customers LOVE the flavor........I would say it's probably just as sweet as wilton's but has more of a depth of flavor and it's not gritty or greasy in your mouth like wilton's.

It crusts beautifully!!

are you talking about Sam's Club? If so, in what section do you by it?

And it keeps in the bucket for months! You can make nice decorations with it too.

You have to go to the bakery and ask for it. They also sell the whipped cream frosting, but I haven't tried it.

I have some now, I'm about to use in a few minutes. I did a "crusting" test on a paperplate. It tastes pretty good too, I'd add a little extra flavor. Some people on CC complain about a chemical undertone and I do taste it, but the average person is used to the icing so they probably won't notice it.

At my Sam's it's already out. It's stacked up under the tables they keep the pastries and sweets on. At another 1, I saw it stacked up on the wall next to the bakery in different colors and sizes. Guess it just depends if your store has room for it out on the floor.

HTH

Sam's buttercream works very well; it's fluffy and crust well. BUT, in my opinion it tastes like SH******T!!!! tapedshut.giftapedshut.gif I wouldn't feed that stuff to my worst enemy icon_surprised.gificon_surprised.gificon_surprised.gificon_surprised.gificon_surprised.gif

Maybe it would be a little better if you added some other flavors? icon_confused.gif But, I doubt it. I'd rather eat a stick of wilton's fondant that Sam's buttercream.

Sorry, YUCK thumbsdown.gif
