I'm trying to find a bulk tub of buttercream icing. I usually use the smaller wilton tub. Has anyone tried the large tub of buttercream from Sam's Club? Will it hold up under fondant? Is it easy to smooth? Does the Viva method work for it? Thanks!

Just bumping my post...if you've tried this buttercream please let me know. I'd hate to buy it and waste my money if it's not a good product.

I know quite a few people that use it under fondant and it works great for them but they don't do the viva method, so I can't answer that question.

I use it all the time, works pretty good as long as you don't go crazy and gob it on. For frosting the cake/smoothing it out, its a crusting bc so you have to work quickly and then you can go over it with a piece of parchement paper and a fondant smoother.

Is buying the sams club bc cheaper than making your own? And can you just ask the bakery for it?

Thanks everyone!!
To mahal50881- the Sam's Club bakery I checked out in Chesapeake said they just need 2 days notice to order it.

I've used it under fondant and by itself...it works great and is good tasting too....what I did was divide it into smaller containers and froze some of them then took out as needed...I think it is cheaper than making my own..so I do use it some of the time.

For me its waaay cheaper, and saves a lot of time and mess. It comes in a five lb bucket for $30 here, and I just walk up to the counter and ask when I go there.
