post #16 of 70
I love sams BC and im on my 5th bucket of white and my 1st bucket of chocolate. its such a time saver especially when i have 2-3 cakes due for the same day.

mommarivera- all you have to do is ask someone in the bakery for it and they will grab you a bucket. the sell boxes and other stuff too

So since Sams Club is affiliated with Wal- Mart do you think its the same icing and also be able to purchase it?

I honestly don't know. icon_razz.gif Let us know if you find out, would you???

I know that Bi-Lo (here in the south, not sure where else they have 'em) sells their tubs of icing, but they need advance notice and it's almost $40/tub. AND it's not as good, IMHO. For me, it's better to make the drive north or south to Sam's Club and get theirs, than to stick close to home where it's more expensive and not as good. icon_razz.gif (Our Walmart doesn't have a bakery.)

I understand that some Sam's Clubs have the icing sitting out in the bakery department. The one I went to did not. I asked. I could not believe all they had. A rainbow of colors in the smaller containers!

This icing is great! Especially if you hate making it like me!

Now I am curious. I know the super walmart cakes are gross around here. I will have to get a small cake at sc to see. My kids won't eat cake from anywhere but my kitchen hahaha. They are not as pretty as all of yours but they sure taste yummy. icon_rolleyes.gif

Walmart doesn't sell their icing. I've been reading all the posts recently about Sam's icing and someone else went to Walmart to ask them if she could buy some and they looked at her like she was crazy.

My husband and I have been discussing getting a membership again just to buy diapers, but now I'm going to have to try their icing too...

I hate making icing. The last batch that I made and colored ended up separating and looked terrible. We'll have to try it soon as I'm planning to make a cake for my Grandmother's birthday on Halloween and I'm hoping to have a surprise 50th Birthday party for my mom in Dec.

I'm intrigued...But I already have a costco membership...Does anyone know if I can buy bc at costco in the bakery, too? If so, is it about the same price?

How long are you able to keep the bc? Someone said the expiration date wasn't for quite a long time, but does it stay fresh after being opened for long?

OK, I must be the only one who doesn't like the taste. I bought a big tub of it and I totally agree it is great to work with. It smooths really easily and pipes beautifully but...it still tastes like a Walmart cake. Sorry to put this in but I ended up throwing over 1/2 tub out as I just didn't like the taste. I guess I should have flavored it more, but I just used it as vanilla under fondant.
I usually use Tami's buttercream which is full of butter and whipping cream and is sooo yummy I could eat it by the spoonful.
Having said all that I agree it is very convenient and nice to work with. If it tasted better I would buy it all the time.

Does anyone know if BJs also has a premade icing? And, if so, is it as good as this one from Sam's seems to be. TIA, Cassie

I happen to work at my local Wal Mart in the bakery as a cake decorator. Sam's Club icing is exactly the same as the icing used at Wal Mart. Someone else asked about Wal Mart selling their icing and the answer is no, the only reason I've been given is that we don't have a PLU# for it. Not sure what PLU stands for, but it's the label and barcode printed off to be scanned at the registers. We're not able to do anything like that that's not approved through home office. One thing that people might want to try is to call 1-800-WAL-Mart and request it to be sold. Not sure if it would help or not since it will probably cut down on the sales in the bakery, but it's worth a try to make it more convenient.

I bought some for the "emergency last minute" cakes. I do not like it myself, because I love the bc I make. HOWEVER....I didn't flavor it and I didn't quite like the feel in my mouth, I guess because I am used to mine. If you flavor it does it taste a whole lot better? And does the chocolate bc taste good? what colors can you buy ?

Oh forgot to add....if you buy it try and get them to open it for you..just loosen because you need a special tool to do that and I have NO clue where to get them icon_sad.gif

The lady in the bakery dept. said that was a big no no but she did it and was very kind to me.

Walmart, where I live has been quite nasty when asked about their icing. I asked the lady once if she was having a bad day LOL. She looked at me and said "NOOOO WHY /?????????" I said because you ARENT being very kind to your customers. I just asked a question and you don't have to be rude. She walked away mumbling something....but I can recall thinking I heard her call me a rather disgusting name icon_sad.gif . I hope this isn't everywhere icon_sad.gif

You can get them at restaurant supply stores, and they're about $13, which is worth it if you're going to be using a lot of it. However, I've found that if you just zip the little strip around the bottom off, then carefully pry the tabs up, you can open it on your own. It took me a bit the first time, but once I got the hang of it, I can now open them fairly quickly, without breaking too many nails. icon_razz.gif I even keep a mallet on top of my tub, for pounding it shut again.

If you have delicate nails, though, or poor hand strength, I'd definitely say get the special tool. Heck, if you know someone who owns a restaurant, or is manager of one, you can probably get them to order one for you, and they might be able to get it cheaper.

I would definitely have to say that the rudeness you encountered at your Wal Mart is definitely not everywhere. I will have to admit that my store has one or two that I would have to say aren't "as friendly" as the others, but for the most part we're a friendly bunch, lol. I've had many customers comment on how nice and helpful we are, some have even written our manager and home office saying many nice things. So ladies, please don't let a few rude occurrences at one store influence your opinion for Wal Mart stores everywhere.
