What brand of butter does everyone use in their buttercream?
Is one brand any better than another?
I use the sweet cream salted butter from sams club.
I use the salted and unsalted from Sam's when I can.
I also get mine from Sams Club, although I use unsalted, and occasionally when I find cream on sale, I make my own..
Ive used both before but buy the salted for other things too so always have it on hand when I need a quick batch of buttercream
I use Land O Lakes. I don't know if one is better than another for buttercream, though. I have just always used it for baking so I use in my bc, too.
I also use Land O Lakes. Unsalted of course.
I use the store brand from ALDI; a small discount store; sells usually for about $1.89 per pound. I use the unsalted in my buttercream and the salted in my cakes unless the recipes specifies otherwise. No problems and love it when it is on sale for $1.49 but sometimes it is over $2.00 which is probably still cheap compared to Lake O Lakes.
If I really want to splurge I get Kerrygold butter [www.kerrygold.com]. It's an Irish butter and it's so rich and creamy. I make rolls just to have an excuse to eat it! We call it "crack" butter at my house because it's addicting. mmm butter. Anyway, it makes the best buttercream (swiss, american, you name it). Oh, but it tends to be a bit softer and more expensive than other butters.
So if you really want to treat yourself try it.
I would only use it on client cakes tho if I charged for a deluxe flavor.
