This week was the first time using Bettercreme purchased from Sam's Club. It was wonderful to work with for the first few minutes then it became what I would consider dried. The more I touched it the worse it looked. Is there a trick or tip that you would share with me on how to smooth this product? The taste is good, the texture is good but trying to smooth it was a nightmare. For those of you that are going to tell me don't use it or that I should have used SMBC, please don't, I just need help with this product for NOW.

Best thing would be to rewhip it with some more bettercreme. You could also use a spatula or bench scraper dipped in warm water to get it smooth.

I had to use bettercreme in culinary school and I can't stand the stuff. It dries out pretty quickly, you have to constantly rewhip it and I don't like the feel it left when eaten. So I prefer to stay away from it.

Ditto, add more liquid better cream and rewhip. Touch as little as possible in general to avoid the drying out ... Works great for filling because the consistency is fine within that context, but less ideal to ice with. Hth!

This was the pre-whipped Bettercreme. Thanks for the suggestion. Can I re-whip the pre-whipped? I tried to stir or whip by hand what I could tell was changing consistency and it seems to get worse.
