Sam's Club Buttercream Frosting

post #1 of 120
Thread Starter 
Hey icon_smile.gif On a previous post, someone advised me into purchasing Sam's Club buttercream frosting that they sell in 28 pound tubs. I was wondering if anyone has used it before, and how do you accommodate the frosting to make different types of consistencies and is there anyway you can make chocolate frosting from this tub? Thanks for your help in advance! icon_smile.gif

Sam's butterream is all I use! I love it! If I need it a little thinner I just add a tiny amount of milk. You can buy the chocolate or sometimes I just add some cocoa powder and a little milk to make chocolate.

i just bought both the white icing and the chocolate. I love it. I originally tried to make the white icing chocolate by adding coco powder and milk, but I was mixing too much in the KA and it got really airy and i didn't like the consistency, so I went out and bought the chocolate. The white, at least to me, seems like a good mediumish consistency. I've thinned it out by adding small amounts of water and mixing. I guess it can be thickened by adding ps...haven't tried yet...or you could put it in the fridge for a little while.

It's $17.86 in southern California. I have only used one tub, but had trouble with it getting "hard" very quickly. So much so, that it was hard to pipe, and I had to squeeze hard to get it out. Since others have raved so much about it, I decided to try another tub. I just got it today. I had heard that occasionally, it can "be as hard as a rock". Anoher member who worked at Sam's had said that. I hope I have good luck. I used the first tub on my ice cream cakes and everyone just absolutely loved it. Any comments on it being so stiff?

Yea! I am going to go and buy this! The thing that I hate most about buttercream is the process of making it.

Seriously, I can't wait!

So, does someonehave the cost? I can't imagine it would be too much more than the cost of making it yourself.

I purchased 3 buckets the other day they sold in my area for $31.18 each. I love their icing but it isn't consistent some times it is too soft and some times it is too thick, I did get 2 buckets that where not smooth. I just work with it until I get it the way I like it. So much easier than making it and it taste good.

Does anyone know if Costco sells Buttercream Frosting? I don't have a Sam's anywhere near me.

Have a great day

I do believe I will be calling Sams tomorrow and find out how much it is here. That sounds like a big difference on the prices between ArtWorks Cakes post and jlh. I will let you all know what they charge here in NC.

OooH and I might add they were 28 lbs. each and I live in MS 1 mile from the Memphis state line.

I always put mine in the KA and mix it on low for a few minutes. You can add flavorings for it. DorAnns oils work great. I love adding almond, and lemon. It cost about 31 here as well. I did a cost comparison on all the ingredients and labor and found, IMO, Sam's is the way to go.
