Has anyone added meringue powder to this buttercream. I live in Vegas and the summer temps are in the 100s. I've tried this buttercream in August and it was entirely too soft. I've noticed some decorators use meringue powder in their homemade buttercream like Edna De La Cruz. You think this will work with the Sam's Club Buttercream?

Hmmm...I never thought to add meringue to it. However if you can add powdered sugar I don't see why you can't add a little meringue! Now I'm in the experimenting mood....going to try it today just to see!

I know this is an old topic, but I was wondering has anyone recently tried the Sams But-R-Creme. I just bought a 32lb tub today and when I tasted it, it taste like plastic icon_sad.gif I thought maybe I needed to doctor it up a little bit and added Vanilla, still taste like plastic. I figure my pallet has changed since I know what home made buttercream tastes like and I'm use to eating SMBC. Just wondered if anyone had this issue. Or if there's any rave reviews.. I may have a neighbor taste it and see how she likes it before I finish the cake for my client.

It tastes just like the icing on the grocery store and Sam's Club cupcakes, not plastic but you can tell its pre made. I use it when I donate large amounts of cupcakes for kids at my children's schools since it really cuts down on my prep time. The kids are always happy with it and I've even had adults ask where to get the icing because they like it and think it would be convenient (until I tell them it comes in 30lb buckets).

I am SooOoo glad I stumbled upon this post! I have been asked to make my third and LARGEST wedding cake. Normally I would turn this down, but it's for a good friend of ours. I was dreading making enlightened buttercream. I called my local Sam's this am and can buy a 32 lbs tub of icing for $32!!!!!! I've never measured my icing before. Does anyone roughly how many cakes I can ice with that much icing? I'll have a 6, 8, 10 and 12" cake all roughly 6" tall.

Ashby 1983, They say the Bettercreme is better to buy and it tastes better than the buttercream.  You might would rather get that instead of the Buttercreme. Sam"s also sells that too.  Just a thought but you can buy which ever one you would rather have.  It just sounds like many people do not like the buttercream that Sams sells.

So, you all are mentioning Sam's, what about BJ's wholesale? Does anyone know if they sell them as well? TIA

Ok....I'll be the first hater.    I tried it more out of convenience than anything, because home made is cheaper.    The consistance was like marshmallow fluff to me and I did not like the taste.    I even added my extracts....which makes it cost even more.     Never again.    I make my own.  I do have lots of decorator friends that like it.    It's all about your taste preference.
