Hey Guys, 

I have never worked with bettercreme. I usually use buttercream for my cakes. i was wondering what is the difference? Is bettercreme lighter than buttercream? Can it be used only as a filling or can it be used to ice cakes as well. I live in Los Angeles, where would i be able to find bettercreme? Can i make it at home from scratch or it needs to be bought? I appreciate the help!

Are you familiar with the frosting on Sam's Club cakes?  That's bettercream.  I don't know of a home made version.  Bettercream is a whipped non dairy frosting.  It tends to be a lighter than bettercream and of course, as is, contains no butter or dairy. 

Sorry, I can be of noassistance in the purchase recommendation as I live half way across the country.  ☺

It does have a lighter mouthfeel than b'cream.   It can be used to ice cakes and as filling.  Personally I have not used Rich's Bettercreme but a similar product called Frostin Pride.  I find them much sweeter than b'cream but many people say the opposite.   You should be able to find it at Smart and Final.   don;t know of any to make it at home.
