Just want to know what others use to store their BC icing in when you have a large order to fill. I'm planning on making all my BC at the beginning of the week for a weekend wedding (250 people) and want to know should I store my BC in a rubbermaid bin? What does everyone else do in this situation. I don't want to have all my tupperware bowls occupied with icing. Just curious.

I have HUGE glass serving bowls, I put my bc in them, cover them in saran wrap, press em down tight to get all air out then put press n seal over that. It works great.

I usually dont use plastic because it holds flavors, (mine does anyway) even after going through dishwasher. I had four gallon tupperware bins that I brought for this and now they still smell like my lemon butter creme. I am afraid they will change my vanilla to a lemon flavor.

edited to add: I have also used party bowls (the big ones) from party supply store, they are a harder plastic and dont seem to hold odors as bad..i used them until i got glass ones.

Have you tried sealing newpaper in your Tupperware for a day or two? Supposed to take odors out.

I have a HUGE container with a lid I found at Walmart. It holds 2.5 gallons. I always make large batches of buttercream the first of the week for all my cake orders. I have a couple of these and stack.

I store my icing in the 5 qt icecream pails. Nice snap on lid and handle to carry it. Also they stack well.

I make 15 lbs of icing at a time in my Hobart mixer. I make two of these each week. I have 5 gallon bowls from Tupperware that I have that have lids that I store it in in the freezer.
