Sam's Club Buttercream Frosting - Page 8

post #106 of 120

You may be the first hater ddaigle, but you're not the only one!  I read this post some time ago and got curious so I went to Sam's to ask about the BC and to request a taste.   They gave me a little spoonful and it took everything I could do to not gag in front of the nice bakery lady.  That stuff is awful!  Sure convenience is great, but why would anyone want their cake to taste like it came from a discount retailer like Sam's?

I'd use around 16 lbs for those sizes (including decorating).

Where do they have it, outside the bakery or i have to ask them at the bakery

You have to ask a bakery staff member and they will go get it for you.  At least that's how it works at my Sam's.

Does it "crust" and smooth well?
post #113 of 120

I buy it all the time. I have a cake business and it's really great icing.

Does anyone know if you can flavor the sam's icing, like add Lorann flavors or add peanut butter to it or add cream cheese? THANKS!

If you wanted to make it cream cheese frosting do you know what the ratios would be? How much cream cheese would you add to how much icing?

post #117 of 120

i would add 8oz cream cheese to three cups of icing give or take--i would microwave the cream cheese in 5 second spurts to get it to a nice soft consistency--well under 30 seconds total probably--not melted though

 

something like that

 

and i think after zapping i would mix some of the icing into the cheese and get it well incorporated to be sure i didn't have a lump issue then add the rest -- you could strain it if it gets lumpy

 

best to you

I recently started buying SAMs club buttercream after reading about it here and I have loved it however I just opened a new container for a cake and this one is not crusting and is thinner than usual. Do you know if I can add confection sugar to it to thicken ur up if not what do you think I should do I have no time to go out and get another batch Ty
post #120 of 120

sure you can powdered sugar or cornstarch or both -- i'd just add it to sample amount and see how you like it
