Now that I'm starting to make larger cakes, it is getting exhausting making all this icing from scratch. . .does anyone have a pre-made icing that they use that is DELICIOUS as well as functional?

Just tossing around the idea of buying the pre-made stuff to make my life easier.. but don't want to sacrifice the quality.

Thanks!

I've heard positive things about Sam's Club buttercream.

Unsure of your location, but we have "Duff Goldman" supplies here and I love, love, love his white buttercream icing as a quick go to. I buy at Michael's with a coupon only though because it is a bit expensive. thumbs_up.gif

I agree, the Sam's club stuff is good. Some people hate it, but I have used it several times (mostly when I was pregnant this winter and just too tired to keep making batch after batch of icing!!) and never had anyone complain. It's sweet, but most buttercream is. I bought a 38lb bucket for like $30. I'm seriously considering going back to see if they will let me buy some red, because I need it in a few weeks and dread trying to color my buttercream dark red!

Didn't know you could buy buttercream from Sams!
