Which one is better for icing and decorating a cake?
The only premade one I have tried is wilton brand. Yuck. If there are others that are better; which wouldn't take much, then maybe that would be ok, but as it stands IMO, it is a hands down for home made.
Don't get me wrong, Wilton does a lot of wonderful things, and I love most of their product. But their Decorators buttercream and their fondant leave a lot to be desired in the flavor dept.
Personally I like to make my own. It taste much better than any pre-made I've tired. I use Indydebi's receipe (found in the "most saved" in receipes.
We have our own homemade version that works great.
I have tried around 6 different homemade buttercreams (crusting and non crusting) and have not found anything that I like as much as Sams club vanilla Buttercream....it's delicious, smooth and everyone who has had it likes it. Plus it's only $31 for 29lbs...pretty reasonable. I also discovered I can add cocoa and make instant chocolate buttercream.
Sorry to get off the subject but does the sams club buttercream crust?
i always make my own!!
JoyBeth~ There are a few different kinds....the kind I get is But-R-Cream (or something similar to that) and yes it crusts Beautifully!
I make my own. I tried several recipes and combined what I liked best from different ones to come up with a pretty darn good BC. I find that the pre-made ones, like Wilton's, have a chemical aftertaste.
