WOW the prices have gone up WAY high for bulk pre made frosting.
I used to make it and sell it but geez... you can make your own for
WAY less.

I just bought some at Sam's Club this week.
Same price as always. 30 lbs for $30.

Which sites do you visit for pre-made icings and fillings? Thanks.

For me, buying the pre made bulk is very close to half the cost of making it myself!! I get all my stuff from the same supplier...BUT my BC tastes way better, and sets me apart from the other bakeries in my area, THEY ALL use the premade stuff...nothing wrong with it...it does taste good, just home made in my opinion is better icon_biggrin.gif

ConfectionsCC, can you share the name of your supplier? Thanks.

What recipe do you use? I like homemade better as well. The pre-made is just good for practice cakes that you dont intend on eating or serving.
I need to break out the bad boy mixer and make a HUGE batch again.
I havent done it in ages. Where do you get your supplies? Do you order online or somewhere local to you in MS?

I just finished up my first tub from Sam's. It's not bad icing, it's just not as tasty as my buttercream. My buttercream has real butter in it though so it doesn't stand up well in the heat. I will just use Sams for the hot months I think. As for cost....the bulk seems to run around the same price as making it for me. Butter and whipping cream are not cheap!

I pulled out the big bad boy and whipped up a 5 gallon bucket of wedding white frosting.
Mmmmm so smooth and creamy. LOL.. My son asked me if it was whipped with whips... hahaha
