Sam's Club Buttercream Frosting - Page 2

post #16 of 120
The tub I got for $17.86 was the "whipped cream" version. I understand there is an actual butter cream version, which is more expensive. The whipped cream version is called "Rich's Bettercreme". Spelled bEttercreme (not bUttercream). Costco will not sell their icing. I called yesterday (at least in San Diego). Maybe you'll have better luck elsewhere in the country.

I will be checking here too. I'll post on the N. FL area.

Does anyone have any photos of cakes that have been iced with the Sam's icing?

Are we all on the same page? Are you all referring to Buttercream or the non-dairy BETTERCREAM?

Crumbcake...I think the 28lb $30 stuff is actually buttercream.

I do know Sams sells the Rich's Bettercream in the frozen section here...I am not really that big on it. It is nice but I like buttercream better.....

At my Costco, they have big tubs of their icing sitting out under the baked goods table. I assumed it was for sale, or they'd keep it in back and not on the floor. I've never looked for a price though.

blondie - check the castle and carriage cakes, and the fairy cake in my pics. Both done in sam's. The castle and carriage show how smooth you can get it, even on the ball of the carriage.

I use the bUttercream for my cakes. I like to use bEttercream for other things. I like it on ice cream cakes and in placees that I need room temp whip cream. Cream puffs, cream horns, Strawberry shortcake on buffet. At school ice cream social, they used it for the sundaes. Lots of options. You can add ganache to it for a chocolate version as well. That is the pic of the chocolate strawberry cake. I use ganache to make both into a chocolate version without much problems. I do not use a big bucket fast so I try to make both from one instead of buying two buckets.

Wow! I can seriously not tell you how excited I am about this. I hate hate hate making buttercream, and it destroys my kitchen every time. My DH will be more thrilled about this new adventure than I will, because he can't stand the mess either.

Not to mention, I can only imagine that it is going to save me money....thinking about all of the tubs of buttercream that I have made and gone bad, when I only do one cake every month or so.

Jlynnw...thanks for the pictures! I am impressed...it looks incredibly smooth!

How long does the icing last? If I buy a tub, and only use half of it...how long till it goes bad?

Also, approx. how many cakes would it ice? I am guessing that 28lbs can go a long way.

I frosted the sweet 16, the tiara cake, and another cake like the sweet 16 and I have a bit left. I keep the frosting in a cool place and it store for a week or so. If I find that I need to keep it longer, I put it in the fridge and pull it out the night before I need it. During the summer, I keep it in the fridge, the heat and humidity, just like in Dallas, is not good on it. The bake shop keeps it out at room temp for 4 - 5 days. HTH

(thanks for the compliments)

For those in Canada Sam's club is closing and for this week you can shop there with no membership so if you have a sam's near by this is your chance. Everything is on sale while they liquidate the stock.

You can keep the buttercream for MONTHS!! It's the only thing I use now icon_smile.gif Everyone loves it, and all I do to it is add a bit of good vanilla extract.

Mine is also right around $30 for the big bucket. WELL worth the $$. Every bucket has an expiration date on the side, and it's at least 3 months out (Just store in a cool(ish) location- Mine is in a big pantry.

To stiffen it up (for dams and such) I just add PS. Otherwise, the consistency has always been pretty perfect icon_biggrin.gif It crusts VERY well and smooths beautifully.

thanks for the info chefjulie. I am not sure I ever had any last that long and it gets quite warm here, so I prefer the fridge. DH thinks AC is a luxury for the rich and famous. icon_surprised.gif
