I purchased a half-sheet iced with their but-r-cream icing for a party I'm having tomorrow. They don't decorate "copyright" characters so I'm piping on my own character but I started to wonder, does it need refrigeration? I'm pretty sure we have gotten cakes from there before and not refrigerated it but I don't want to risk the cake going bad between now and tomorrow at noon. Thanks for your help in advance!

If it was cold when they gave it to you, I'd probably refrigerate, although I"m sure it's an american buttercream... so all that sugar would be a preservative.  Give them a call?

It is the same But-R-Cream Sam's Club sells and no refrigeration is required.  It is shelf stable.

ANo refrigeration is needed, but if it already has some kind of decoration on it (like a color border) I would suggest refrigerating it because their colors tend to run if they get too warm.

I'm sure it'll be okay left out for years - I mean, anything with the name But-R-Creme* cannot possibly be classified as edible.


I wonder if people actually do eat it, or just purchase it for use in chemistry experiments.....

ALol Anna...seriously though, WHO thought that was an attractive name for icing?

AWell, seeing as it contains absolutely NO butter, and definately no cream - they can't legally call it buttercream so I guess but-r-cream was the next best thing.

AWe used that and another one at the grocery stores I worked. I think that one is kosher parve (dairy and meat free) while the other one we used had "milk solids" Mmm Mmm Mmm! For some reason I don't think of dry milk, it makes me think of cottage cheese. The name of it made me giggle the first few times but then it started grossing me out.

AMilk solids. Makes me think of nasty old curdled milk.

I'm trying to access a price list for Sam's club buttercream and other icings on the internet and am not able to get it. What phrase should I be putting in the search slot to find this. I have ordered some icing by calling Sams and they gave me the price,but I would like to see what else they have to offer-cake layers,cupcakes etc.

Love! I've always called "American buttercreme" -that contains 0% butter "industrial oil byproduct sludge" but I like your idea better.
